Benadryl is an awesome way to potentiate medication. I take it for sinus problems as well as for sleep.
I know what you mean about shrinks. I desperately need my meds adjusted to alleviate a bad bout of major depression and anxiety, which was aggravated this week by my new shrink's incompetent staff. They screwed me over royally--accidentally cancelled my appointment (which was supposed to be Thursday) and carelessly shoved it to April 15. (HELLO...tax time?!?) I can't wait that long, so BYE-BYE, SHRINK.
Right now there aren't enough bad words I can say about the doctors in this state. I can verify that it is worse than California (I used to live in Monterey).
> [Sigh!] Seven of those combinations are unobtainable in San Francisco where I live. Either they are not approved by the FDA or they include a stimulant that Shrinks will not prescribe.
> It would be nice to have a Shrink in whose competency one had faith. I have had some in the past but lost them due to changes of domicile. After four years of fruitless verbal sparring with ones that didn't have a clue, I finally gave up and have been Shrink-free for two years.
> Ironically, during that solo period I discovered by serendipity that a combination of low-dose Lexapro and diphenhydramine, (Benedryl), worked better than anything for my major depressive disorder.
> Sure wish I had someone to turn to in a crisis, though. But I knew the the Shrinks that I had would have proven as inept in emergency as they are in normalcy.
