My doc AND the pharmacies make me feel like a drug addict.
I try to call my doc, she doesn't return calls. She won't return my psychologist's calls. Her office won't call in perscriptiosn and during the school year I'm 2 1/2 hours from her office! Last time I needed a refill they told me it wasn't time yet. They gave me the persc. in march with 3 refils (so march, april, june, july, now I'm almost out silly doctors!), and wouldn't give me the refill without makin an appt. The doc's impossible to make appt's with.

She sometimes didnt' call things in (when she used to call in perscriptions) and I was on paxil at the time which can have bad feeling withdrawl and there I stood in the drug store with no pills left upset because I knew what was going ot happen. They gave me one pill to get through. It's humiliating when the pharmacists is only maybe 5 years older than me. The drug store near my house staffs high school and older people, so I'll go to get my persc. and it'll be osme young obnocious looking kid ringing up and knowing what I take, or worse someone I went ot high school with.

I had a horrible time quitting paxil, and the withdrawl was awful, I felt like an addict.. My psych has me on 3 meds now, some are to counteract side effects of other meds I take!

I had anxiety problems in the fall so my mom called her office and they called in a blood pressure medicine . Said all they could give me was paxil (which I was mad about because of my horrible withdrawl from quitting it a few months previously) or buspar which never worked that great for me. My mom and Isuggested an beta blocker but instead she called in an alpha blocker.
Raised my prozc without asking and then I had to go back to 10mg because of akathisia and restlessness.

Maybe cut out cheese and then go to your doc and show him that you have. I heard there's another MAOI which isn't as risky about the foods you eat, mayeb it's a newer one. Show him that you've done your research and you know what works for you and what doesn't and know the risks. Tell him you're willing to sign and affidavat saying you understand this and will not hold him responsible if you eat cheese by mistake.
