I've had these concerns, as well. And I certainly am not completely honest with my pdoc.
When I was first taking Celexa, it seemed to help but I really became lax with the regime. So, I had told my pdoc I was feeling better. How could I tell him I was feeling horrible again?
Do just that. If you don't want to be completely forthright, keep it vague. Say you felt better earlier but don't now. Meds poop out. There are other things going on in our lives that affect our stability.
If he's (or she) condescending or shocked, you do need to get another pdoc. Depression and manic depression are lifetime illnesses (I think) and our med regimes will probably change several times t/o.
