> but Jodie, you QUIT taking lots of other meds. I don't understand why the pdoc took you off the others, which were also anti-depression meds. My doc does meds one at a time, but when he tries something new, he doesn't just quit me on everything else. He fine tunes... took me off the Concerta and added the Straterra, while maintaining me on the gabitril, remeron and lexapro. Having you QUIT everything but the Straterra seems to be a pretty Machiavellian move. But again, I'm an attorney, not a pdoc.
Jim, I completely agree. I don't understand it either. When I went in for my appointment last week, my pdoc asked how my lexapro was working. I told her that I haven't noticed any benefits from it so far, but I was only on 10 mg a day for a month. So she said since I haven't noticed anything, she would just take me off it, and the Klonopin. She said that since I may have ADD, the Klonopin can actually make it worse. She said she likes to try one med at a time, period. But like I had stated b4, I've been on Klonopin for a little while, so I think I should have been tapered off it. Actually I did this myself since I had Klonopin left, but according to her, I was supposed to just stop cold turkey. Since I have probs with severe depression, I don't understand why she stopped the lexapro. It should have been increased in my opinion. My doc said that Strattera should help with the depression, since it has antiD properties in it. I was her first patient to get Strattera samples, so I kind of feel like a lab animal or something. Oh well I guess in a way, we all are.
