I’m sorry you’re having such a difficult time. It’s imperative that you report these symptoms to your therapist and to your prescribing physician (these might be the same person but that was not clear from your letter).
It’s possible that your medication is the problem and a change is needed. Thus the importance of reporting your symptoms.
It’s also important that your parents are informed about your concerns. They could speak to your treatment team on your behalf.
Many mental health problems benefit from both medication and counseling. One without the other is often not enough. If you’re only taking medication, then you may be missing an important element of treatment. Be certain to inquire about counseling.
Finally, if you feel that you might harm yourself or someone else, contact emergency officials. Don’t ignore suicidal or homicidal thoughts because they may represent an emergency. Please take care and stay safe.
