Right on Junebug. Try to remember you are the patient, the paying patient. You are the customer. Believe me the clinic considers you a customer.
Patients have rights and by law are to be provided with information about a new RX. Ask what kind of withdrawal symptoms to expect when you come off the med too as that has helped me to say no to a couple of the ADs.
I always get nervous too but I take my list with me. And I pull it out as we visit. So know your not alone, your in good company.
