Guinea pig? Oh yeah, because they're not sure what will work right exactly for ya and it may take a lotta meds to work for you... I dunno...
I know what you're going through. The doc wants to up my Lexepro to 20 MGS but it is just too much I think at this point. I'm on Ativan as well everyday and the doc doesn't want me to take it anymore but I feel like I need it because the Lexepro doesn't seem to be working very well but maybe it is I don't know.
To be honest, anxiety/panic is still not researched enough I think. I think there's more to it, and docs don't have enough answers. "Here's a pill, talk to somebody, off ye go" I guess is how they figure it.
"Maybe that'll work for her," yeah but I still feel panicy and such.
We should be at a point in science to just know what will work for our bodies (doctors that is) but it just doesn't seem that way. I just don't think enough time and money is spent on researching this debilitating disorder. I wish more time was spent on it.
Maybe we'd all feel a little better everyday then.
But at least we're not living back in the 50's where'd ya just be locked up and given a bunch of antipsychotics and then when those make you more crazy you're just considered hopeless.
At least we have something. And at least it is recognized as a true disease/disorder.
