A little better?

This is Monday. Last night I took the 15mg Remeron and .25 klonopin and 1 tablet of kava. I slept better--not yet a really restful sleep, but better than the last few nights. And, I did not feel as sedated today. It was easier to get through the day. I feel a little bit more in control of my mind and body. I have no idea if this will continue. I never before made it to a point that I could actually tolerate even the starting dose of an AD. So this surprises me. I will wait to hear from you before I contact the doc about dosage and prescriptions.

When the divorce goes through I will have to join a diff insurance company (HealthSource). They have lists of generic, preferred and non-preferred drugs. Their only "preferred" AD's are Paxil, Zoloft and Prozac. Everything else is non-preferred and costs $25 per script! It's pretty sad when someone at an insurance co is deciding what to prescribe---Is there any way to get more at a time if it turns out the Remeron might help me?

I will call tomorrow to see what the results are on the thyroid tests. How is thyroid antibodies shown on a lab form? It doesn't seem to be written out on any of the screens. Is that what FTI is? What would I see as symptoms if some sub-clinical thyroid problem was an issue? I seem to recall that depression can be a symptom of both hyper and hypo thyroid. But about a year ago the GYN's office did a "hyperthyroid screen" and told me all was OK. I will ask for copies of that test and this one.

Hoping can give me some guidance.
