I went to see Dr. Dude today. I told him that Paxil was horrible and I counted the ways. He said I should stop taking it. I don't take it tomorrow. I take it on Sunday. Then I take Wellbutrin starting Monday which sounds much better, but who knows...
I also got a prescription for a light box. Yippee!
Dr. Dude says us whiteys need to take vitamin D in the winter and that I should be taking fish oil.
I go back in a few weeks for my physical so we'll talk again then, and I'm to call in the meantime if things get worse.
I didn't feel rushed, it was a nice and quiet talk, and I have to say that instances like this in particular show me how nice it is to have a family doctor who knows all of us and how I feel about things, what makes me nervous, remembers personal details from visit to visit and appears to actually care.
I couldn't talk to a stranger about such sensitive issues.
Writing a blog is different. ;)
