Choosing Between Mental and Physical Health

Posted by PCB on June 15, 2020, at 19:27:50

Hey Everyone,

Has anyone else get on psychiatric meds only to have things like high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, etc. develop from those the medication? As if a mood disorder is not hard enough to deal with, to have the psych medications make you physically sick on top of that is just horrendous. I have been posting for 25 years looking for an alternate to Nardil with no success (nor has anyone ever wrote me or posted a solution to replace Nardil). I am down to marijuana, cytomel and weight loss surgery as solutions.

So anyone have to chose between mental health with psych med leaving you physically unhealthy? How did you deal with it? Should I switch to an ssri or snri with less weight gain, but have most of my depression untreated?

PS the other thing I have seen is many docs not offer potent psych meds to like Nardil, TCAs, ECT so these side effect never occur. So many patient are left with a majority of their psych symptoms untreated :(
