I know, please don’t clap back, this isn’t the case for everyone, I just want people to know that CNS drugs pretty much always means lots of side effects in the beginning and it can last for weeks, and these are for drugs that really work in those patients that have terrible side effects in the beginning.
Definitely not clapping back. This is just my concern, as I think you're correct that most of the time these side effects are temporary. Whether the drug works or not in the long run, those side effects will dissipate for most people. The traumatic part for many of us is how many times doctors have either told us 'this is how it will work' and we've found it didn't work that way (eg. when I was constantly encouraged to push through fatigue and pain and told there was no risk of long term damage). And when we hear 'most', we have a feeling that we won't be one of the 'most people' from prior experiences.
Again - not a clap back and I'm considering a trial with LDA, but concerned about what I do if I push through the side effects and it doesn't work long term for me - will there be long term damage.
