Personaly i have to agree with the idea of self medicating.

The system is just too difficult to work with.You have packed jammed doc scheldues,where u have to wait weeks .

You have ultra short sessions which are only a matter of minutes,almost absurd to think a professional can correctly evalute you and moitor you after not seeing u in weeks,seeing tons of people the same day before u,and having u in front of them for a few minutes.This is not the kind of care such a horrable dehibilating disease should have.

This day and age you have SOOOOO much more resources than you did just a few years back.And JUST BECAUSE im saying i might know more on current meds than my doc does not mean i believe i know more overall than my doc.There are a lot in the profession a doc has to know,insurance how to deal with reps et etc etc.

Also patients are different,but i still believe with the TIME,the RESOURCES a person has,i still have to say i believe a patieant can know more about there medication treatment then there p-doc.

This is why is INCLUDE my doc,i dont however exclude myself in treatment.
