Ugh! What a great situation! It would be one thing if they forgot to bill you and then went after the insurance company...

As for the drugs, that's an awfully high dose of Effexor XR, isn't it? I thought that it only went up to 275? I wonder if you're being overmedicated, and if it might be better to back down some and try another combo?

Your idea of a second opinion is a GREAT one. I'm glad you're doing it. Another doctor won't necessarily change anything, but at least may tell you what changes might help. Remember that doctors are leary of patients 'shopping' around, they don't know you and don't know if you're going to try to get 'fun' drugs or are maybe chronically unhappy with anything.

Still, from your posts, we know that you're smart and articulate, so that'll help you in talking to the new doctor. Good luck, and here's a little more support {{{{hug}}}}
