> I wish I would have had a scan at the amen clinic when I was off all meds last winter (and totally screwed up by it!) But I would have needed my husbands help to get there and he still wouldn't help me do anything to get back on medications. Now I'm on 15mg of remeron that has made me somewhat functional, but that is it. Am starting to wean of remeron, but would sure like to get some kind of test to at least better my odds with my next med choice. For me, its not just the time seeing if the drug works, its the long taper to get off afterward and the fact that I get worse than I was with every drug withdrawal. I'm going to have my husband start researching this for me. Maybe I can find somewhere to have this done.

I feel your pain. Believe me we're all in the same boat. (And apparently it's sinking fast.) The problem is, we actually would like to know what the problem is and why we're being prescribed certain meds. The doctors on the other hand just want us to be good little patients and take our pills and stop complaining. It's not that they're all bad's just that the brain happens to be the most complicated object in the universe. They don't know any more about how it works than most of the posters on this website. Actually, they probably know less because they're not on the internet 24/7 researching this stuff like a lot of the people here are. I'm sure there are some nutty professor types in some lab in Princeton or Harvard that are up on this stuff and could help us out a little. But i'll be damned if i know how to get in touch with them. The best we could do is surf the web and read and spend a lot of money on unproven medical tests that may or may not point us in the right direction. I mean there are so many medications and possible combinations that you could spend your whole life trying to hit on the right formula that works for you. You have to titrate up and than take it for a while and if it doesn't work you have to wean off of it so you don't freak out and than start the process all over again with a new one. Meanwhile we're losing the one thing we can't make more of...time...
