Re: A roller coaster ride
desi, Welcome to the board. I have recently been diagnosed so I am just starting the med-go-round. But I would say that you definately need to tell your pdoc everything that is on your mind and how your medicines make you feel. If you feel intimidated by him/her, then maybe it wouldn't hurt to try to find one that you are comfortable with and who you feel will listen to your concerns. I do know by reading other posts that it may take a while to find the right cocktail and I am sure you already know that first hand. And even though it's frustrating, I know that you will be able to make it through, and we are all here for you.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!
