> Please do not feel you are responsible for me trying this. You are not at all.
> I am envious of your session. We were given only 10min with Dr. E and my whole experience with dealing with the company was very disorganized and not very professional. I wish desperately that I had gone to California and dealt directly with him. I also feel at this point that I would need the rEEG done again, because I really don't believe the Kava was out of my system, even though I followed their guidlines. I tried to express this to someone at CNS response but they just pooh-poohed it and never passed the information on to Dr. Emery. I believe because Kava is an herb they don't take it seriously. It affected me dramatically. I even had sexual side effects from it and the last week I took it I was an absolute zombie, which didn't clear for several days beyond the 48 hours they told me to stop taking it.
> I just feel like my test was compromised and then I never even got asked by him, have you tried this med before? like he asked you. I don't think they should refer people out if they are going to get sub standard care. Certainly if I knew the difference between the treatment you received and that I received I would have gotten on a plane to California without question. I wasn't that impressed with how CNS response handled all this.
> I supposse I can always start all over with another scan etc. But I just don't know.
> I'm glad you had a more positive experience. Lamictal and Topomax weren't even listed on my form to be rated!
> I don't know if you would want to mention this all to him or not. I think he should certainly know that if I had known the level of care I got would be so far below what you got I would not have hesitated in going to California. No one at CNS response ever indicated this would be the case. I also don't know if he would let me redo the test due to the Kava issue. If he wouldn't, there isn't much point anyway.
> Good luck to you. I am very envious.

I'm also surprised that they didn't take the Kava issue more seriously. I was explicitly told that herbs and supplements could throw the test off. I wasn't even supposed to take vitamins, and especially not fish oil, because they could compromise the scans.

I am going to tell Dr. Emory about your case the next time I see him. Since CNS Response is his company I'm sure he'd be concerned that things weren't handled well with you. I really think you should write a letter though so that you have all of your issues stated and see if he offers anything to help you out. If anything, I would think that he might reinterpret the results taking the Kava into account the way he did for the doxepin.

Is California a long flight from where you are?
