I'm on meds 18 years


#1

how long are you on meds?


#2

10 years and seven months.


#3

On and off 14 years, regularly just 4 years and 9 months. By the way, much better quality of life, even though I still struggle with loads of symptoms and consequences of my behaviours. I would also need CBT to improve even more, and I am fighting to get it as much as I can.

Also, I have been a memeber of this forum for pretty much the same amount of time as I have been on meds, yay. ^.^

@pedro27
Hello there, it is amazing you keep on meds for such a long time. Have you developed any long term illness due to the side effect of the meds?
Thank you.
