So... everything went fine with my pdoc.

I confessed that what I did was a "breach of courtesy" (thanks Jane:)) and told him I didn't mean to challenge his authority. He said it wasn't the latter, just that in the past his patient's self-medication experiments haven't turned out happy. I told him about how I felt silly asking about possible treatments (with him having the degree and all), and predictably, he said I shouldn't, that he was open to that sort of thing. Our meeting wasn't as congenial as it usually is, but we both seemed to have decided to forget the angry words he threw at me.

And he went along with all of my suggestions. I'm trying Wellbutrin SR 100mg twice a day, and Effexor XR at 112.5. I'm not sure what I think of this combination yet, but I'm happy to be trying something new.

Thanks again everyone,


> PM - Good luck tomorrow. Remember don't let the skeptical looks intimidate you. Give him a chance to react now that he's had his dinner or whatever. I personally think that not telling him was a breach of courtesy and that his response to you was another one. Not a major crime. If you can work this out - great. If not, as you said, you can always go somewhere else. - Jane
