I understand what you are saying yet not all doctors are the same. If a doc prescribes me a new drug, I would think that he wouldn't hand me the script and say "C-ya". If he did, I would hope the patient would say, "What the heck is this for"? Like I said in my first post, some of us have illnesses and take a lot of medication. Believe me that the meds have letterally burned a hole in my pipes and stomach. The one thing is not to stop and start. That's when you really get messed up. Anti-depressants as you prob know, take about 3-4 weeks to regulate your mental status. Once you do, you get better and can see results. If you don't, you got the wrong med. The thing that gets me ticked is that we get one and it don't work and then have to get another and it gets expensive after a while even with good insurance. 3 of my meds cost $50 ea. a month and that's my co-pay. Imitrex is $5 a pill, pk of 9=$45. It's redeculous. The labs are making $$ hand over fist because we are all depressed. They keep hicking up the cost. Shiesters! Anyway, what the heck was I saying before I got on a rant??? OH, meds. I guess people are going to do whatever they want to and suffer the consequences. That's all I can say so I see it as a loose/loose situation.
