Well, I suspect that would depend on the types or drugs you are taking. Some drug's primary function is to change personalities.

Medications can affect behavior and aspects of your personality such as making you feel more focused or clear-minded but fundamentally it will not change who you are.

Drugs are a different matter.

I think they can. After all antidepressants would change your personality by getting rid of the depressive part (at least that is what they are supposed to do. ) Evidence seems that long term steroid use can lead to a much more aggressive personality. Even an aspirin, when getting rid of an ache, can improve my short term personality.

Anti-depressants are supposed to revert you back to your former personality.

I don't know about changing one's personality but a high dose of steroids gave me a massive appetite and very short temper, thankfully as the dose was reduced normal service was resumed.lol

The pain killers do a bit, they take off the top end of my personality so that Im not so jokey etc, it comes and goes so when I hear the groans at me jokes I know I'm back.

Are you talking about drugs or medication? Depending on what a person takes,there could be a change in personality.

My sister took Prozac for a long time, she became very aggressive and completely unlike her usual self. I read that it made people suicidal...a scary thought.
I have a fear of mind-altering drugs, side affects of any drugs are sometimes worse than the symptom they are supposed to be treating.
