what can i do if my body refuses most of the medication
Mutiple Personality Disorder (MPD) is a specific diagnosis. It is not just another name for anxiety and depression. MPD patients can experience periods of anxiety and depression along with the dissociative states.
I was diagnosed with MPD many years ago. I am presently diagnosed as Bipolar Type 2. I try not to get caught up in the labels and concentrate on treating my symptoms. Which means taking my meds as prescribed and going to therapy when I need to.
If you would like to know more about MPD check out this site:
It will give you a basic idea as to what it is.
If you are having trouble finding the right medications, please don't give up. It can be a long drawn out process, but with proper care, you will find something that works.
If you have further questions please don't hesitate to ask,
You'll want to talk to your doctor, there's a chance that the anxiety and depression might be bipolar, especially if you feel like you have multiple moods... just a thought. I think that I kinda know what your talking about, I have c-ptsd, and from one moment, I can be happy as can be, and then within a moment, I feel suicidal, and like a very very different person, taking me back to my darkest moments in my life when I was a very different person. Luckily, the meds have more or less put that all to a stop. Anyways, as was mentioned above, multiple personality disorder is a very specific disorder, and is not anxiety and or depression. If you happen to have a misdiagnosis, it would explain as to why the meds aren't working. Or... if you do have unipolar depression, it may be a simple matter of finding the correct meds. You have to remember that antidepressants are just like keys.
There's a ton of them, and you really have to go through them until you find one that works. It seems that it's pretty rare that anyone finds the correct med on the first try, unless they're settling for unnecessary side effects.
Good luck to you, and hope that this is of some help to you! Hope that you'll be feeling better soon!
No it is not ! I personally suffer from anxiety & stress all my life then when in my early 50 s I suffered from depression due to post traumatic stress & was perscribed Zoloft.During this time I had to go to councilling & see a psych doctor who said I had a very strong personality that is why I got so stressed which caused my anxiety,he then said to slow down, do deep breathing,relax more to calm the mind that I did not have a mental health issue at all which was good to know !
I took a drug called Zoloft for 8 years to keep my symptoms at bay but in fact it wasnt the case so have only recently gone off zoloft because of the many side effects I had been experiancing for years but did nothing about because I thought it to be normal.I have been on a new drug called pristiq which is treating my anexiety & stress so far its working well ! so I do hope my account here of my own experiance helps you to make a positive decision about your health issues. take care Candypq
