    Default The affect of Psychotropic drugs on type

    Do you think that some prescribed psychotropic drugs (paxil, lithium, lexapro, prozac etc.) affect certain unwanted functions in order to turn them into more desired (either by society or the individual) functions?

    Alcohol and some illegal drugs are psychotropic, how do they affect functions?

    If I knew what type I was 4 years ago, I'd tell EXACTLY what they do
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I tried paxil when I was 18 and hated it. I hated coming off of it even more.

    At 25, my doctor has prescribed lexapro and klonopin (for those special occasions when I feel like I'm going to flip out). I've only been taking the lexapro for a couple of weeks but I have noticed that I'm more upbeat and more talkative. A lot of the things that made me nervous before, like not picking up on human interaction signals, don't bother me as much.

    My mother's been taking it for awhile and it seems to help her. I'll give it some time and see how it works.

    "i'd much rather be manic than on the other end of the spectrum! what do u take? "

    I use to take Prozac. For a while, the mania was pleasant and was, generally, a positive influence upon my outlook at the time. However, it soon began to become so all-consuming, that I behaved absurdly, arguing inceessantly and became such an ass, I drove others away. I also started hearing weird things, so I decided to get off the Prozac.

    Well alcohol is a psychotropic drug and yeah I think that they do.

    Does anyone whose taken anything think that it brings out functions that are desired in society and supress those that aren't?

    they were horrible for me. SSRIs are powerful things... sometimes good, sometimes bad.

    Psych meds, particulary SSRIs, affect each individual differently. Prozac has saved lives... it's also caused a lot of people to be suicidal. Psych meds, particularly SSRIs, should be taken under close supervision.

    I took Abilify, an antipsychotic, for a while, and I noticed that, as opposed to stopping my moodswings and bringing me back to a normal level, that I would no longer ever experience episodes of mania, but would have more frequent periods of depression.

    I was also on Wellbutrin for a time to cure the frequent depression caused by Abilify, and, like Ashton, found that it made me VERY asocial, as well as somewhat antisocial. I simply felt like I couldn't care about anything at all. Suprisingly, I also experienced periods of VERY EXTREME emotional instability, where I would feel extremely depressed over something that, normally, wouldn't phase me at all. I'm still recovering from these side affects to a degree, and in spite of the fact that most would react differently to the drug, I would advise anyone to stay away from Wellbutrin. For me, even knowledge of what I put at stake by taking the drug would be enough to deter my from taking it again.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    "............"



    eh, no comment.
    Except for this: I don't use drugs, and quite frankly I don't need them.
