"Stressed by medication side effects"

About: Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust / Adult mental health

(as the patient),

In my experience staff I have met do not listen. Medicine has terrible side effects e. g overweight, dehydration, asthma- all of this causes more stress! I was given medicine that was no good and I left.

In 2012 I was told I cannot claim ESA or JSA because I failed medical assessment and tribunal claim. I may not get housing or council tax benefit to cover rent and tax. Quite disgusted.

And I will not want any thickened fluids if I end up in there! Thanks!
