Yeah it is a ridiculous amount of time to wait - and I don't even get to see him in person - it's all done through telepsychiatry which I HATE. He's the kind fo doctor that gets offended if you suggest a med, etc., he think HE should be the doctor and know it ALL and I should be a stupid conforming patient. I called the nurse and told him with my recent increase in Geodon that I was having trouble swallowing (which is common with th enewer antipsychotics apparently) and he wouldn't even make the med change back to the lower dose I was on before until I saw him again at the END of FEB!

So I talked to the nurse and she said to go to my GP - so I am tomorrow morning. Hopefully he'll be compassionate enough to make some med changes until I can see my pdoc in Feb.

Thanks for everyone's advice!

Jerry
