Thanks for the post, Susan, good stuff. We only have 3 Pdocs here in town, though I am within 2 hours of several larger urban areas. I feel too, that these docs go with what works "the most" as to what works "the best" for an individual. As I have been ranting this week, we are not all vanilla, and we react very differently to meds as indiviuals. I guess it's the cookie-cutter mentality that bothers me the most. Also, these Docs need to realize, we aren't stupid people. Statistically speaking, most chemically imbalanced people are of above average intelligence. Some of history's so-called genius cutting-edge intellectuals were clearly out of balance. I know as much about a med before I go into the Doc's office as he does. I can read a PDR, and understand the basic biochemisrty of the brain, its receptors, how enzyemes affect metabolizations and the like. Strangely, it's not the "rocket science" I once thought it to be, but more a skill of detective work and postulative exrtapolation.
