Hi there.  So what medication are you on and when did you start taking it?  Is it prescribed by your general doc or by a psychiatrist?  Also, have you talked to a psychologist?

The medication takes a good 4 to 6 weeks to build up to a therapeutic level in your system so it may take a while before you see the thoughts truly start to dissipate.
