Sooo if this isn’t the most random thing to happen , please tell me your thoughts .
I was booked to see dr s end of this month saw him last in January . I wanted to discuss medications as currently I’m med free ! Well yesterday morning at 9am he calls me ! I was very taken back he’s never called me before ! He then asked how I was doing and said if he could avoid me a trip to see him then we can discuss over the phone . I was a bit angry at this because one I figure he’s going to charge me and two I had my questions to ask him and had to start work so was so rushed on the phone ! Had no time to talk properly !
He said the next med he wants me on is venlfaxine , he did say some interesting points. I have started getting full on headache migraine now he said this is a good sign ?! Go figure ! He said he thinks all the meds I’ve taken have helped my brain to heal to the point it’s at now ! The best is he said I’m in the fast category of healing ! so 18 months is fast ? Sorry if that scares anyone I was pretty shocked myself but hey maybe this is to give some of you realistic expectations on how long the mav brain can take to calm down! He told me to remember how I was when I first saw him to now and I said it dosent bear thinking about as I was in the darkest place of my life ! In 18months I’ve gone from 5% functioning to 50% most days . This is considered fast in mav world
Anyways I told him I had a lot of questions so he said I need to call to rearrange another phone call if he actually charges me for this I’m going to give his secretary an ear full! Has he ever done this to anyone here ?
My last questions is people ok venlfaxine ( Effexor ) can you give me your thoughts , side effects ? Prozac gave me insomnia and I’m really worried this will too as I’ve read it can ? He also said start on 37.5 but I’m wondering should I start lower ? God I hope this med fixes me bubble foggy head because what it would feel like to have a clear head even for an hour I would actually cry !
Thanks for reading guys and hope ur all well
