But i staye...

Could be the perc's are just a part of your answer. I take Klonopin(clonazapem) HS Ultram 2 at bedtime and up to 2 more during the day,i've found one little twitch or bug like feeling and i need to jump on it right away or it just goes bonkers. As a 3rd back up i may take Niquil. I sleep like a baby...

what i've found is some of the drugs we need the primary doc's feel like they need back-up to keep giving them to you. So they might send you to a specialist,get the documentation and then keep treating you.Problem is when you go through a crisis period then they don't know what to do all over again.

I'm speaking from experience here. I was on every psych and antidepressant med you can think of for years and years until the D...

LOVE your tude Hos! My dh is like that. It has to be a "manly" illness for him to get involved. Plus he's not a good speller and i can't stand it when people correct others.I say hey man as long as you can make it out get over it! I was at a local meeting about 3 weeks ago and there seemed to be equ...
