I' m upset , wanna find a good pdoc

Posted by Anna Laura on December 14, 2001, at 12:32:11

Hi folks,

I am supposed to switch from Effexor to Parnate.
I've been tapering from a 300 mg. dose down to 75 mg. I' ve been on 75 mg. for three days by now and i'm feeling more apathetic and gloomy and kind of vulnerable. I went to the drug-store today and bought Parnate. I read the papers inside saying that the compound is a mixed one (tranylcypromine + a neuroleptic called Trifluoperazine Hydrochloride). The problem is that i've tried that kind of neuroleptic in the past and it made me very depressed. I told my pdoc about that and he told me that i wasn't supposed to read that paper, since i was supposed to follow his prescriptions. "Let me do my job and you do yours which is being a patient !!!" - he yelled. Then he added: "go ahead and take it when you're supposed to take which will be the next week" "But what happens if i get sick?" i said. "Don't worry about that. People have been taking that med for a long time and never had any problem. If you're going to feel sick we'll see what we can do. I'm the doctor, not you" - he shouted.
When i hang up the phone i was in tears. I think i''ll go back to effexor, i'm not going to take that neuroleptic cause i'm sure i'll get sick again and i don't want that. Why is it so hard to find a decent pdoc? Is it my fault?
