Yes I am going to return to this doctor to at least see what he decides might be wrong.

Doctors are big fans of Paxil and zyprexa around here. Waterloo, Ontario is paxil and zyprexa town. In all likelyhood I will be titrated up to 80mg of paxil over the course of 6 months.


After this, any complaint will be responded to with "You know, it takes time to work!"

After 6 months of this, the doctor might say, "have you tried zyprexa?" And when I say yes he will ask how much. I will say 2.5 mg. He will say thats nothing, and prescribe me 10mg of zyprexa to take with my 80mg of paxil.

After this, when I say I'm a zombie, he will ask. When are you taking your medications? I will say the paxil in the morning, and the zyprexa in the evening. He will tell me to take the paxil in the evening and see how that goes for a month.

I will come back a month later, and will tell me that maybe we should try prozac instead.


Does anyone understand the wall I'm up against?? Does anyone know the type of doctor which I am talking about? The type of doctor that thinks the reason the paxil didn't work in the past was because "they" weren't the one that prescribed it.
