The med changes sound good and hopefully they will help you. I hate the pdoc as all we do is try this med and that and in 2 years not a lot has changed. I still get stuck so I am so hoping your med change works for you.
Thanks for keeping us up to date as you know we support you and want to see you feeling better. God Bless
Wen, I really hope those med changes work out for you (I get being scared of Pdocs too - they look at me and think "cuckoo", I'm sure of it!)..
Try not to worry too much about the weight gain, usually these things even themselves out with time, and you certainly don't need anything else to worry about.
Take care with that valium increas (I am certainly no expert) but I have been known to fall off moving objects (as well as trip over kittens) when I've upped any benzo. My thoughts are with you sweetie, take care and I really hope this eases things for you in every way. Bless
