floatingbridge has some heavy hitting simple logic here that I totally agree with. If the desire is more parnate, then that should be done. Makes a lot more sense than messing with the whole works. There is nothing wrong with having a second opinion or a second doctor. It is kind of scarey, sometimes successful and sometimes not, to order your own meds from overseas mailorder, but the option does exist. Finding a second doctor sounds like the wisest thing to do, though a mailorder supply would probably arrive sooner than that could be arranged.

Look, we need our doctors to work with us. I don't see what the concern is in increasing the dose, unless he is paranoid about insurance regulations you don't know about, potential law suits, or potential State Boards coming down on him.

You want a higher dose of Parnate, you should get it. Makes the most sense. And thankyou floatingbridge for that wisdom. I kick myself in the butt sometimes for not seeing the obvious. I'm glad someone else did. :-)
