You are not weird for wanting to understand things. It is your brain we’re talking about.
You are a central member of your treatment team. You need to have sufficient information to make informed decisions about medications. The doctors need you to be able to accurately report effectiveness and possible side effects. So please don’t back off looking for answers to your questions.
The members of the Ask the Therapist team are psychologists and social workers, not medical doctors. You need to be taking your questions to a psychiatrist (MD) or a pharmacist.
I urge you to have a frank discussion with your prescriber about your concerns. It’s absolutely appropriate for you to request literature to help you understand what a medication is supposed to do. It’s very important to ask about drug to drug interactions as well as drug to food interactions.
If you are at all inclined to change the dosage or timing of your medications on your own, please don’t. Work with your treating physicians.
I wish you well.
