I don't take any meds; I even gave up everything the doctors prescribed, because they had me on anti-psychotics to control the psychosis caused as a side-effect by another medication (a serotonin reuptake inhibitor)... I need drugs to control schizophrenia and psychotic episodes caused by other drugs ... okay, not doing this anymore.
After five or six years of including risperdone, by the way, the doctors finally asked if I'd rather try a different drug rather than dropping altogether. Yes, they decided on drug pairings rather than alternate medication when faced with the issue of stimulant-driven psychosis. Of course, everything they recommended caused toxic psychosis (psychosis caused not by normal brain chemical imbalances, but by a toxicity effect--i.e. by poisoning).
Even when you have 3 doctors in the room trying to pick drugs out for you, they do more harm than good. Unless you have a serious medical condition, why bother? Legs being sore != serious medical condition.
