> but why not just tell your shrink you disagree and you havent and don't plan on filling the script? what can she do? you can talk about it (or let her know your mind's made up) and unless you're court ordered to "cooperate" i doubt there is anything that they can or would do for disagreeing with logical argument--no matter how "wrong" they might percieve it.

Thanks for the responses. Woolav, the reason for my dishonesty is that sometimes doctors won't give you one medication unless you take another medication also. I have expressed disagreement, but it seems my doc won't change her mind. Now, I could switch doctors and hope they will see it differently, but then I risk not getting the medication I want. There seems to be no consistency among psychiatrists from my experience. It's just a total crap shoot. Because of previous frustrations I'd rather just fill the prescrip for the med I want. I realize this is dishonest, and therefore some will see it as wrong, but sometimes you reach a point where you're so sick of the differing opinions among p-docs that you just don't care.

If you think about it, what really is the difference between not taking one of the medications prescribed, or spending lots of money searching for a doctor that agrees with you. I'm sure I could find one that agrees, but then what have I accomplished?... the end result is the same, only I just spent a lot of money. It isn't like my psychiatrist spends lots of time with me anyway. I see a psychologist for that, and he agrees with me on the medication issues. Thanks for your comments though.
