I have a simple question but I need input.  Right now I am not doing real well.  I called my pdoc late afternoon and left a message but said for her to call when she had time (she works an awful lot of hours) or if not I would wait til my next appt. in 2 weeks.  I am on Strattera, lexapro, lithium, and wellbuterin.  I was on effexor but she weaned me off several months ago.  I still have some samples.  I have been thinking of taking them to see if it will help me but do not know if I should do this or not.   Any ideas?

Hi Chelsi,  I would NOT take those samples.  You need to get ahold of your doctor and let her adjust your medications.  Especially with the medication regime you are already on......

Please keep us updated.

I agree that you should talk to the pdoc first. Mixing meds can be dangerous. I would call back and tell them you have a question about meds and could she return your call asap.

I would wait to talk to the doc.
We can respond to irritation with a smile instead of scowl, or by giving warm praise instead of icy indifference. By our being understanding instead of abrupt, others, in turn, may decide to hold on a little longer rather than to give way. Love, patience, and meekness can be just as contagious as rudeness and crudeness.
