Hey, my psychiatrist proposed to lower my meds but I'm scared not to feel alright anymore if she does this because I have in mind that this good feeling comes from the meds and not from me. What should I do? Am I right when I say that meds can make a person feel better in his shoes?

Why does the psychiatrist want to lower your meds ?? If you lower the meds and have a problem, you can always go back up.

I'm taking 18 meds a day and I'm only twenty but I'm scared of what will happen if she does this.... I'm scared to be the person I was before starting being on meds..
