Dealing with past addictions?

My psychiatrist prescribed me with numerous medication, I find it hard to take most because I never want to like that again. Has anyone felt this way after recovery?

  • So are you saying that he did assure you they aren't addictive and that if you didn't believe him, you could research them yourself? If so, then I would say if you and your doctor feel the meds are necessary, then you will just have to trust him that they aren't going to create dependency for you.

  • If you are a recovering addict, I hope you discussed your concerns over that with the psychiatrist. If you did and they psychiatrist prescribed them anyway, I would make one of two assumptions. That either
    A) The meds are non-addictive OR the risk of you taking them is far less than the risk of you NOT taking them
    B) The psychiatrist is not making a competent decision and a 2nd opinion should be sought.

  • If they get you high in some way then I would not take it. Ask your doctor if you need to take them or are there other options.

  • Actually he told me to research the meds because he would not give me anything addictive. I am still skeptical but I do trust him.
