Re: help needed truely unsure what to do

I agree with everyone who's suggesting you simply tell your Dr. how the med is working, and don't drop names or variants. What's interesting is this: most doctors encourage patients to gain as much knowledge about their meds as possible. That is, except for narcotics and other mood alerting drugs. In those instances, they'd prefer you didn't know that much. Anytime a patient starts asking for drugs by name, or even doses, doctors tend to get skiddish.
