my psych can't prescribe, so now i have to get a letter from him and make an appointment with my physician so she can write me a prescription. i don't know why the f**k i have to meet with her in person. when i go in for my yearly it takes her about two f**king seconds to feel my boobs, shove the forceps in, swab my cervix, and stick her finger up I disagree. then she's out the door and gone. i feel like i'm the least of her concerns, but now all of a sudden she wants to bring me in to TALK to me about my depression?
f**king doctors! i think she just wants more billable hours. :paddle:
what are the options for you as far as the antidepressants go? did your psych at least give you some suggestions? i've found that most doctors have their antidepressant favourites. my old family doctor loved effexor; effexor did not love me. my old shrink worshipped zoloft. i was only on that one for about 3 months, so i can't really say much about it either way. my current doctor has told me in the past that he likes celexa, but he's never had me on it.
he wants me on zyprexa right now, but that's an antipsychotic. i'm not on any meds right now, but zyprexa is part of my emergency plan in case i lose my head.
Feel depressed...doctor sticks finger in ass...confirms depression...gives medication.
Man, if I thought all that was needed was to have someone stick their thumb up my butt to get medicine then I'd invite him over to watch during a particulalrly rampant rumpy-pumpy session, at least that way I'd get a prescription and be having fun.
