    What happens when you miss a dose?

    If I skip a dose of my meds I get very sick, like, stuck in bed with the spins and lots of emotions/paranoia

    I take 3 prescription drugs

    Gilenya is the immune suppressant, if I miss more than a day or two I have to go to a special clinic to take my next dose, because the potential side effect of the first dose is death.

    Modafinil for fatigue, it gives me enough energy to make it through the day. If I forget to take it I feel like I’m dying, just no energy at all.

    Cannabis for insomnia - if I time the dose for the Modafinil so I’m sleepy at bedtime, I get headaches and feel sick before bed, if I take it as I should I have way too much energy to sleep, so I take the cannabis a couple hours before bed, sleep like a baby.

    I take two pills in the morning. One is called effexor, and it's an anti depressants/anti anxiety medication; And I take risperidone, which is an anti psychotic typically prescribed for schizophrenia and sometimes bipolar and autism.

    I have to miss several doses to have psychotic symptoms but 1 dose and it ruins my next day and a half.

    Effexor is one hell of a drug, was on it for a while, side effects were hell for me

    Then again, my issues were actually MS related and not typical clinical depression.

    Not anymore. I’ve had a period when I took quite heavy painkillers every day, but I hated how drowsy it made me.

    Girls who say that they take doses of semen as their daily medication are gross. I don't care what kind of mental illnesses you have. :)

    Yeah, I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on effexor, but it seems to work for me. I imagine if you're not depressed it wouldn't be very helpful. One thing though, the withdrawal from it is BRUTAL. I can feel it within hours of me needing to take my dose.

    That was after my horse riding accident. I think they just gave me too much, or underestimated ma ability to deal with pain. Anyway, I persuaded them to decrease the dose, and later they told me to figure out for myself how much I needed and just take it if I couldn’t bear the pain. I stopped taking it the same day. Yes, it hurt, but I felt better nonetheless

    But wasn't it suggestive? Like, you didn't have to take it if you didn't want to?

    Oh shit, sorry to hear you went through that, but good for you for not letting painkillers take over your life! That shit is dangerous

    Well, they put a bunch of metal in my back, so giving painkillers made sense. I guess they just overdid it. Maybe they forgot to adjust the dose to my body weight (I was 12) or my body responded stronger to them than usual. Whatever it was, I had trouble focusing and understanding what people said to me
