Hi mandie58,

Nice to see you. This is a really good question.

My clients often talk to me about the progress they are making in taking medications. Sometimes lots of progress, other times, not so much. Here a couple of questions and suggestions:

Length of time on your medication is an important thing to consider. It takes time for medicatons to work at their fullest potential, so if you have not been on your medications long, you may find that ofer time their effectivelness increases.

Are you working close with your doctor? It's really important that you doctor be aware of the symptoms that are being reduced by the medication and the areas in which you are not yet experiecing change. The more your doctor is awre of, the more he/she can help you.

Also, keep in mind that getting to the best medication regimen can take some time and patience. Changes in your regimen may need to be made along the way. Sometiemes this can feel like two steps forward, one step back. But it's all part of the process. Another reason to work closely with your doctor.

Are you working with a therapist? If not, you might want to consder this, if you can. A therapist can help you to learn some new coping skills that might help, too.

I hope this helps. And I hope you will take good care of yourself. Be your own best advocate and team up with your doctor.

Keep us posted on how you're doing!

Gary
