> ~~~ I think a discussion with your doc would be good. If you are comfortable with your GYN - I take it that's your prescribing person right now -I would hope they would work with you. If not, maybe getting a pdoc referral wouldn't be a bad idea. While we need to be informed and advocate for ourselves, trying to figure out the right way to go with meds can be very lonely and discouraging if you are trying to figure all this out on your own.
***I tired calling an old pdoc (went to him 11ish years ago) to get his take on this - but he was out of office today. im still trying to decide whether to REALLY give the meds a try or go w/ an au natural approach - just received my 260$$ worth of vitamins today - including magnesium glysinate, SAMe, etc.
> > i really dont want to gain weight.
> ~~~ I know that's been something concerning to you. Has weight or an eating disorder been a problem for you in the past? Did someone convince you that weight gain would be an issue in you took head meds? I hope it doesn't offend you I would ask that...... That's not my intention.
*** no offense at all - i am def. obsessed w/ weight - if that qualifies as an ED??? then so be it - i eat normal and what i want - i am thin despite having 3 kids in 4 years - good metabolism - want it and NEED it to stay that way- i just feel like crap when i feel fat and cant wear cute clothes - sounds trivial but it changes everything in life for me to have to go the sweat pant route instead of the jeans and cute shirt route - it make me insane and more irritable.
> when did it kick in and really start to help your panic?
> ~~~ At 2 weeks I began to feel a "lifting" and the SE anxiety was controlled. By 4 - 6 weeks I had max effects and all the startup untoward effects had abated.
**** so abt two weeks before panic subsided??
thanks again for your very informative posts! cant wait to hear more from you so i can make my decisions!
