    1. Unfortunately, my doctor told me to stop taking my viibryd, klonapin and adderal without giving me any guidance whatsoever about how to do that. I’m supposed to go to a doctor that prescribes that medication so I can get off of it. He was very unwilling to be helpful other than giving me a prescription for Paxil. It was the quickest psychiatry visit of my life. My neurologist thinks there is something wrong with the psychiatrist.


      1. I don’t know, but I’m going to have to report them all. They really suck. Maybe they think mentally ill patients are stupid. My nightmare in the hospital proved that. The thing is, I don’t want to sue my doctors, I just want to be treated with dignity and respect. I need help, not lack of treatment in a lock down facility. I didn’t ask for these medical conditions, I just have to live with them without slipping into withdrawal. The doctors seem content to believe that I’m sicker than I am. I am not schizophrenic or psychotic, I have a major depression disorder, anxiety disorder and adhd. I am not bipolar.


      2. Mental diseases aren’t so easily compartmentalised, nor are most others. That’s something we like to do, but they are all on a spectrum, usually merging into each other imperceptibly. That apart though, mental illness has a stigma and pts are treated badly. I hope you find someone better..

      3. Sure it’s not like having a broken arm, but if you receive adequate care for a number of years, have a diagnosis then, the pharmacy or your insurance provider changes your medication and you get a new doctor who likes zombies for patients, you get a new diagnosis that contradicts everything you have lived with for 30plus years. The stigma, should not be within the system and in this county it seems to be pretty rampant. I don’t think my complaints actually went anywhere. Just in the garbage. I don’t think anyone there cares at all. Whether its EEG’s or quality of life for functioning psychiatric patients.

Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
