I went to see the head of the clinic this past Friday. Of course there was ZERO communication between my parents so when I went to their house to drop off my kids - neither one of them were there. In their defense- each one thought the other was going to be home....
Either way no one was there and now I was going to be late to the one appt that you absolutely can not and should not be late for.
I ended up being 15 minutes late and he rushed through the whole thing, stating a couple times that he is pressed for time. I had a chance that not a lot of other patients in this clinic get and it was ruined. I was so upset.
He said he'd be happy to refill my scripts (but of course this would send the pharmacy into a tailspin because they arent due to be filled until the 26, plus I am leaving to san diego on 24 so either way he has to ask for a special override).
He asked about nerve medications and I told him I havent tried Topomax so he said he'd be happy to put me on it.
My question is - what dosage is everyone else on? I ask because he has me taking 2 a day for one week and he wants me to taper up to 4 pills 2x per day @ 25mg. Is this a lot? And I read about the weight issues with this med...I am already a little underweight and do not want to end up being skeletor just in time for Halloween either.
I did notice the first night I took it with the klonopin I was knocked out cold within one hour...couldnt even talk.
Any other side effects that you guys have on it?
Anything else I should know about it?
Anything that it doesnt mix well?
Other than that it was a rushed appt - he stressed that in addition to my psychologists I need to see a psychiatrist! (they must think I am whacko)...loo...I'm kidding. I know I need the help.
Thanks In Advance!!!
