    Dry Mouth Constant...Fibro Thing?

    As @sunkacola said, dry mouth is a common side effect of many meds. In my case, amitriptyline seems to be the culprit. I only experience dry mouth during sleep as I take my amitriptyline at bedtime due to its other side effect of drowsiness (and also as prescribed). What I'm doing now is keeping...

    Coming off Medication to 'reset'

    It doesn't matter what type (SSRI, tricyclic, etc)...I always have the same side effect of disturbing dreams. Just finished up my visit with my mental health doc. Really nothing to be done unless I want to discontinue antidepressants. That's not an option as I tried before under my doctor's...

    Thank you everyone for your feedback on antidepressants and disturbing, vivid dreams. I will take the advice given and speak to my doctor this week. Hugs!

    Coming off Medication to 'reset'

    This is a little off topic but since amitriptyline is being discussed here I thought I would ask. Does anyone here experience very disturbing dreams with amitriptyline or any other antidepressants? I have found that all of the antidepressants I have used give me extremely disturbing dreams, so...

    Mood swings

I'm not sure how much help I can really give you since you did not mention any of these diagnoses. Even with medication, I do frequently have mood swings. I know it will take...

    The Struggle Is Real

    Don't let it be difficult Phil. I mean unless you are expected to respond. I really don't know what advice to give to be honest. I just thought it was nice that you listened and hoped that that was enough without you having to say anything to anyone except I understand or that must be difficult...

    The Struggle Is Real

    What you offer Phil too many of your customers is way more than just a haircut and much more valuable. So many people silently suffer in this world of ours and don't feel heard. Listening to someone is a generous gift from the heart. Thank you for recognizing that, and for being there for so...

    The Struggle Is Real

    Agreed @JayCS . @sweetkamie20 it certainly does sound like you live in a dangerous area, and very unhealthy environment for socializing, even just getting outside and passing a stranger. I think changing your living environment should be a HIGH priority for you. Otherwise, you will continue...

    The Struggle Is Real

    I think it is apropos here for me to say that one of my very favorite words and a description of my ideal lifestyle is 'balance'. I always try to strive for a healthy balance in all areas of my life. :)

    The Struggle Is Real

    Yes, it can sometimes be difficult, especially in a culture where we are indoctrinated to be outgoing, to go along with the crowd, extroverted. Introverts get a bad rap in the US (I cannot speak to elsewhere). I don't know, Jay, about introversion LEADING to social anxiety, but a combination of...
