Well, I sort of had two psychiatrists at one point. I have my regular guy (Dr. S.), whom seems to prescribe things despite my medical history (mostly with my GI). For example, I went into my GI doctor and he insisted I stop whatever medication it was. ...wish I could remember, so I believe there is a bad side effect link there. Not too long ago, I was on 100mg Pristiq and I think 100mg Lamictal. It is believed the Pristiq at 100mg was making me more irritable and mean, so Pristiq was cut in half and Lamictal was doubled.
So then there's the other guy (Dr. P.). I went to him at my mother's recommendation because she knows the aforementioned nurse practicioner. He doesn't see new patients, but still does things like TMS. I didn't go to my Dr. S., because I don't like him and because it wasn't convenient to work (lol). Basically, I had to go every weekday for a month straight and then I was weened off. The nurse practicioner should be calling me shortly to check on me here soon. She said she would. Maybe I'll reach out to her. She told me so much, I simply couldn't retain it all.
Do you feel like discussing the issues you were having vs. what you're feeling now? I'm glad you're showing improvement.
I guess I'll e-mail my GI doctor whom I'm kind of on the outs with and see. Maybe I should call my pharmacist that loves me. I don't know. I'd like to just stop the medication after my next appointment with Dr. S. Therapy will continue, because I know I need that.
Right now, I play a computer game you can never really finish to distract me from my garbage life. It's almost a complete distraction because I can only focus on it.
Please know how much you're appreciated here.
