> James - your post was of interest because I've had some conversations lately about this with my therapist, who has been less than supportive of my participation on this board. I don't rely on this board for definitive medical advice and I think people here are very careful not to offer that. I do find that the experiences of others has helped me to formulate the right questions, and to feel that I am a more active participant in trying to find medical solutions that work for me. Let's face it - we all have more experience with these drugs than we would like to. Keep your posts coming. ksvt

James here....

I am glad people understand the context of my posts,
I do try to make it clear what is fact and what is opinion.
I can see how some doc's don't like the internet, there is a valid
consern about factual information. Some doc's like to play god. A primary care doc I
had told me not to read the PDR. When I asked him to justify this statement he looked troubled.
I told him that unless he was willing to spend more than 5-10 mins with me to answer questions
I would always do research on my own as he seemed to not have enough time for this. I moved to someone else who was not threatened by me doing research.
I have had good luck with pdoc's, all 3 did not mind me reading on my own. I always bring URL's for my present doc
to look at. He really enjoyed Dr Bobs tips section.
