OK guys, having a BAD day today,(panic attack from hell while driving my bus this morning) I went to the ER again. Got all the normal tests done, EKG, blood work, etc... Everything came back normal again. I told them I took a .5 xanax about a half hour before I got there, and they STILL gave me 1 mg of Ativan through IV. They told me to consult with my doc today, so I called when I got home and they scheduled me in right away. I almost missed my appointment because I fell asleep from all the xanax and ativan they had me on, got to the docs a half hour late and I didn't get to see my regular doc, it was his partner which i'd never had before. She wants me to increase my dosage to 100 mgs of zoloft and keep taking the xanax with it. I'm not sure about this..... But she also will not let me go back to work again for another month. She wants me to get blood work done to check my vitamin D levels, and also another test that costs like $500. I have no medical insurance, everything for me is self pay. I told her this and she told me to go to the welfare office and get a disability form and bring it back for her to fill out so I can get help paying for all these tests, and my hospital visit again. She wanted to switch me from Zoloft to Cymbalta, but I told her I didn't feel comfortable doing that, and that the Zoloft always worked great for me before. I am "mediphobic", I don't like taking pills period, and if it's something I've never had before it just makes me worse. So anyway, just have to ask, if there's anyone here taking Zoloft, since i've never taken stronger than 50 mgs, do I bump to 75 first for a week, or just bump right up to the 100? I'm kinda scared to raise my dosage.... I want MY regular doc!
