I cracked up when I read that you had a pharmo
appointment in 2 hours! I have an appt. with
a doctor in less than an hour! (i'm not laughing
that you're feeling so miserable--just the absurdity
of having your brain chemistry jerked around--the
craziness of it just strikes me, b/c I'm feeling
so similarly).
You've certainly tried alot of stuff. I thought
about it today--how alot of us in this newsgroup
have struggled with how hard it is to change medicines
and trying to find the right one. I wonder if it's
more difficult than it used to be because there
are so many different options now, and also the
newer drugs seem to have shorter half lives which
makes the withdrawals so much more intense. (?)
Please do share whatever you find out today.
I'm going to ask my hmo to refer me to a psychiatrist
b/c so far all this experimentation has been with
a regular practicioner--a different one each time.
I really feel like I need some specialized attention
on this issue. I'll let you know how it goes with
the doc. today too. I still feel unsure if I
shouldn't give serzone more time (it's only been
a week), and sometimes I take it and feel better,
sometimes I take it and swear I feel worse. I'm
really confused. I thought today that maybe I
should try taking it at the exact same time of
the day, that maybe b/c of the short half life causes
me to go through little mini-withdrawals between
doses? I know I'm grasping at straws. The bottom
line is I aint no psychiatrist and I need one to help
me answer my questions...
Look forward to hearing from you--Ruth
