    That, my friend, is a loophole... The original intent for check-up prior to prescription is that. Also the first time you go on, the doc's suppose to do a 2 week follow-up to ensure you're okay.

    Tell him to go fuck himself, and see what he says; I'm not kidding. You need a new doctor, yours is into needless, fraudulent billing.

    OK, but what about after the 2 weeks? Why should someone who has been on an SSRI, SNRI, or other anti-anxiolytic/anti-depressant for an extended period of time have to put up with that? Maybe so doctors can bill insurance companies needlessly? Come now, Nightning, you know better...

    Don't know how that relates, but my stand on this is the same as my stand on many other things: Personal Choice Regins Supreme. If a person wishes to be medicated, or cease taking medication, it should be their decision, unless they are "koo-koo." Don't tell me how to care for myself, and I won't tell you how to care for yourself. Isn't that a great attitude to have?

    hmm... well, actually, i've heard it's easier to get anti-depressants than ADD meds. I sent him an email and he gave me his cell number... i suppose that means i can have a phone consultation. i've been reading about neuroplasticity and pretending to implement the tedious techniques/processes used in order to make myself think i am improving the state of my mercurial thoughts. i really just want those patches.

    That is true assuming the individual has sufficient knowledge on the issue. Part of the consultation should be that... informing the patient about the details. But the medical system is epic fail when it comes to that.

    Is it ethical to have a blindfolded individual step off a cliff without telling them the cliff is there?

    Of course we can't just blame the system... we as patients are also at fault... because we don't want to know about the details... "I just want those patches"... Me too.

    So you finally got them? Well that's good. If only they didn't make you jump through hoops. Luckily the ones I take aren't too tightly controlled.
