Re: Is This Appt. Worth It?
The appointment was supposed to be to wean off of the Atenolol (from my perspective). The side-effects have been a lot less this week. My stomach has been fine. I just was wondering with my #'s if he would back it. He wouldn't let me wean at 120/78, even though I have no heart issues & my blood tests are fine. I wasn't supposed to go back until January. It would cost $115. I have $100 deductible with my new job. I'm just trying to find the point. I wanted to go in 2 weeks ago when my stomach would kill in the morning, but they had no appointments available, wanted to schedule me with the Nurse Practicioner+. I'm just curious with my #'s if he would approve the wean. Otherwise, I will have to go to my specialist friend that is 1 hr. away. My current doc. is only a 15 minute drive.
