It’s frustrating when you reluctantly agree to try a new drug, only to be disappointed with a lack of results.
I spent years not wanting to try any mental health medications, regardless of what kind.
I thought that they would change my brain and change my mental processes for the worst, plus even if I got some relief it wouldn’t be worth the cost. I’m blissful that I was totally wrong. I tried 1/2 a dozen different antidepressant drugs, plus I didn’t recognizably like the effects I got from any of them, however none of them had any lasting effects, especially drawbacks. Instead, they helped a small bit, which is much more than I expected. As such, I didn’t want to throw in the towel while trying several medications. So, the SSRI meds didn’t work well with my brain chemistry. However, a neuropathy drug called gabapentin that is used off-label as a mood stabilizer, worked wonders. At last, I felt some sense of stability with our day to day psychology. But the best kind of relief came when I tried a cannabis concentrate one day that our friend had on hand. All of us live in a state that has both medical marijuana shops plus legal recreational cannabis stores. Most shop in the recreational stores because it costs a lot to keep a medical card. This cannabis concentrate turned out to be cannabis distillate oil, which has a massively high THC content compared to cannabis flower items. For the first time, I felt all of the depression simply melt away.
