Lets not get into the little - 'I've suffered much more than you ever could' competiton.

It's pointless, not to mention unjustifiable.

Most people on this board have suffered, but the ones who have truely suffered the most, are probably the ones who post the least, or the ones who don't feel up to visiting this board all the time.

What JPS88 said is valid. We all need to refrain from saying things like "this combo is the best ever", or "this drug rocks", or "this is the ultimate combo", or "everbody needs this drug"

The simple fact is that *everybody is different*. What works for one person, may worsen another's condition. We are not all sick for the same reason.

*Many people try to convince themselves that a drug works, by trying to convice others that the drug is working.*

*Very rarely, does a drug produce the same effect in a few month that it does during the first few days*


I would earnestly ask *everybody* here to take sufficiant time in order to fully asses how a drug is working, before they assert that it has solved all of their problems.

And most importantly, always try to describe how the drug has effected you. It is easy to think that the effect would be the same for everyone, but thats just not true. You will find that prudence is one of the best tools for mental illness.
