: I'm still waiting for my doc. to call about the effexor. My head still aches and my bp are still high.. and the ringing in the ears. I feel as if she not responding to me. This is my second call this morning and usually I am not that aggressive, but I do need to get some answers. I did talk to another psy.. yesterday for an appointment , unfortunately not for a week and a half, but she said my 2 doc. should have been talking together etc. I am upset, and frustrated. It is good to know that there are others out there who have had experiences with these meds.. once again thanks for listening, I don't feel like I want to cry out of frustration now!

Hi Nancy,

This is the first chance I've had to come back to the board this week. So how is it going????

The other Doctor is correct! The doctors should be touching base with each other on your treament and meds! But they often don't. So we have to be proactive and gather as much information as we can about any medication we are taking. It can save our lives or those we love in some cases. Yet, it's the worse time in our lives to have to absorb information, isn't it? It was for me!
It's now starting to get a bit easier for me but it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. Brain fog was preventing the understanding or retaining of the information and I just wanted a Doctor that could say "here just do or take this and all will be well" actually they did say that...but it didn't work that way for me. :-(

Have you seen or talked to either of your Doctors yet? How is you're BP and headaches? Are your ears still ringing? Have you been taking the Cytomel again?

Hope to hear from you soon, Tina
