Hi Twistedchick,

I would make an appointment with your doctor and see where to go from there. He/she may refer you to a pxychiatrist.

I hope that you feel better soon. Do keep posting. Did you have any refills on your prescription? Please see your doctor.

Hugs, Karen

The sooner the better since they take 4-6 weeks to take effect....do NOT give up and stop, ok?

Good luck

It is actually pretty easy. Make an appointment with your doctor and when you get there be open and honest about what is going on and what you want to do about it.

Doctors deal with people who have stopped taking their meds all the time. This is nothing new to them and they would much rather see someone come in and admit they have stopped and want back on them than for them to continue to deny it.
