Hey gorgeous,i know excatly how you feel!!! ive gone through this before and am now going through it again as dr. no ears doesnt want anything to do with me (because my health insurance doesnt cover his rehab hospital costs and therefore i cant complete HIS program), the pain specialist i was seeing and was treating me with the ketamine has backed away and the phycologist is threatening to back away if my surgeon continues to operate! For fucks sake, I have a mechanical problem causing the chronic pain which is (was) triggering acute pain. And these pain specialists dont treat acute chronic pain do they? they arnt going to continue to pick up the peices left by my surgeon. ill continue this rant in my own blog, but girl i feel what you are feeling. ive been through it before and am going through it again. They (the doctors) have no problems just dropping you, like you figure it out type of thing.I mentioned to my phyc about dr. no ears and why he's dropped me; phyc's response would you help someone if they couldnt afford it? My response: yes, if that person really needed it . Phyc: well unfortunatly thats not how the private system works! no shit dumbarse. Dr. No Ears is supposed to be the be all and end all doctor that you see when there is nobody else that can help. He's an arsehole 99% of the time. Word is (from my neuroligist) he only has a 40% success rate. probably because he drops patients like nobodys bussiness.Its unfortunate that ive been friends with Dr No Ears's daughter for quite sometime, but in that time, i know where he lives, i know ALL about his family, ive been drunk at his house several times. ive been in his pool, danced on his tennis court, and even on a drunken dare back in yr 11, pashed his daughter (haha). btw she's a bit of a slut.sorry to rant this but i hear ya loud and clear.**btw ive made a quick and hastey decision we should go live where there is better weather (colder the better) or simply go on holiday to NZ or even tasmania if we're desperate to lose the humitity in summer. Humitity and heat sucks. Friendship and compassion rock.hope this cheered you up a bit babe.xx jen xx

It has almost been two years since I started taking this medication. The positives are improved sleep, less anxiety, and almost a complete elimination of depression. The only negative is an increase weight. I have put on more than 20 lbs. in the past two years. Still, that's not an excessive amount of weight and is much better than the alternative.

I haven't been taking this medication for very long, only about three days, so take that into consideration when reading this review. So far, I have not had any feelings of excessive hunger, which is a big plus. And I feel like I have been hypnotized, which I guess is a good thing. On the other hand, I have had to deal with some anxiety and irritability. The side effects aren't supposed to be as bad the longer you take it, so I'm not giving up on it yet.
