Hope4best: I hope you find another doctor, that is just sooo ridiculous. And for him to make light of how many drug trials you have had is just mean spirited.

For everybody starting or in the middle of yet another trial (Thats me too) just try to remember that expecting results in two to three weeks is often way too optimistic. PLEASE don't stop a drug trial at six weeks. A lot of people don't respond until eight, ten or twelve weeks. The only drug I responded to in three weeks was paxil. My last drug trial I got anti'anxiety in four weeks and AD effect (well, what there was of it) in ten weeks(only partial response so on I go). I just wonder how many people don't find the drug that works because they stop at the recommended four to six weeks. I just think for some people that isn't enough time.

I know it sucks to invest so much time, but it might be worth a big pay off in the end.
