Re: PLEASE HELP! concerta dosage conversion? momofdnd

I found the site and printed out a voucher!

the problem with my doctor is that she is having to re-write my "nut" med prescriptions as my pdoc isn't on my health insurance. This new (but affordable!) insurance comes with a lot of restrictions, but it's better than nothing. I couldn't afford to even take meds if I had to pay for them myself. I did have to switch from generic klonopin to generic valium as they don't cover benzos and I have to pay for them out-of-pocket. I'm starting to worry though that the diazepam is exacerbating my depression as I've really been doing poorly.

Days go by that I simply can't leave the house and when I do get out, I don't get much done - just what I HAD to and then I just come running home. It used to be that if I could get myself out of the house, I'd be able to stay out and get more things done which help - like working out!!!!!
But now I seem to be in that awful "frozen" place of depression, which drives me mad, as I 'know' that movement of ANY kind will help, yet feel totally incapable (unwilling) to do anything. Chores/plans/life just keep piling up as I dread the advent of every day. I don't think it's just the switch to diazepam. I'm just depressed. But the diazepam might be making it worse. The concerta used to at least help focus and motivate me but my depression feels stronger than my ADHD, not that I think one can 'separate' those things - obviously much more complicated and intertwined

I'm hoping the free trial will cover at least 40-50mg per day as I currently take 108mg concerta. If it works like it sounds, I could possibly just take 1-20mg in the morning and maybe another one at noon or 40mg at once? Hopefully that would be enough.
I haven't a clue :)

I can't thank you enough for the free trial info. If my pdoc will write the script on friday, I can go ahead and fill it without bothering my primary!

I'll keep you posted! you're wonderful for thinking of me :)
Sometimes I'm so grateful for this place and the people on it... considering how the media makes depression look so damn easy to treat, we're lucky there's a place we can gather to compare notes. I used to think it was just me but I've been coming to this board for so many years now, I am simply amazed how many of us there are and how little our needs are really addressed. Wish there was some way of making this farce more public.

LOL obviously I'm capable of rambling on and on :) oh well, at least I'm still able to laugh at the ridiculousness of being me


> Hi again lilith,
> I get that same feeling about pushing my Doctor and being afraid how she will react. I am always afraid that she will think I am just trying to get more drugs. Honestly,I think that this is all in ours heads, I don't think any Doctor is just going to leave you hanging as long as we are honest with them...
> also, wanted to let you know that I found a site on the internet where you can print off a coupon for a free 30 day trial of focalin. I can't remember the address but I am sure if you do a search for focalin 30 day trial you should find it. If you can't find it, let me know and I will look it up and send it to you.
> Good luck at your appointment tomorrow, have faith and everything will work out.
