yeah...I have bad experiences with docs pushing meds on me (lithium...try it. GOOD STUFF!) from the first visit. For some reason, its also been my experience that docs give me numerous different meds, and the dosages tend to be on the higher-end of things (I'm really not that treatment resistant...I've noticed that even my *starting* doses tend to be higher than my friends, even when we visit the same shrink. Weird)
Anyway, there are lots of good, collaborative docs out there, which is nice...there just don't seem to be any around *here*, which I think may have to do with social factors (its the south and a lot of the docs aren't from the south; they seem to have this weird, condescending approach towards southern culture...even though they live here.) Plus, alot of my docs have been younger--it seems like the younger docs tend to have more ego "issues" and what not. Oh well.

Good luck with opiates! I hear they work really well on a lot of people...apparently, there's even some evidence they can help with hardcore mental health problems like treatment-resistant schizophrenia.
