Re: Why do i seek/crave more meds when i'm upset or stressed!

Whenever I'm not medicated I'm like this with carbs and sweets. I will crave and binge on cookies, chocolate, etc. I think it's because I'm low on dopamine and my body is naturally seeking out something that will raise it to normal levels. It definitely makes my mood, focus, and energy improve. I used to weigh a lot because of this. It's managed really well on medication and I don't get those cravings as bad. I think maybe your medication may not be working but historically your body has associated feeling better with having that medication boost.
