Hi, Dear dr told me "Lea, this Zyprexa will help you sleep." He knows that's the Magic Phrase to use when he wants to get me to try something new. At the same appt he ordered up Singulair. Same reason: "It'll help you sleep." So for once I was the Good Little Patient and didn't run search on either of the things and tried to forget the warnings I'd heard on the tv commercials for Singulair. I should have searched. It took two days before I didn't know what town I was living in and what the year was. See, I went to the library here in Lake County CA and wrote a check for 6 of what the library-people call "hurt books," aww. Wrote the check to San Francisco Public Library despite the fact I left SanFran in 1979. No, the Zyprexa didn't help with sleep. What it did do was make it so I could go from zero to P'd Off in about 2 seconds, be mega-agitated, and forget about sleeping. Zyprexa doesn't allow me to do that. Turns out the stuff was made for bipolar issues. I didn't think I had any of those, checked the list of symptoms and was right. The search I ran showed me a couple videos about how FDA has stepped up and told the truth about that horrible stuff. And still drs prescribe it. How can they get away with that? Come to that, how can their consciences allow them to do it?? Singulair gave me back to back migraines no matter how small I chopped the pills. It's for asthma which I also don't have. Dr said the Magic Phrase, so I tried it. Big mistake. Yes, I'm dr-searching again and have found the name of a grand total of one. I just hope he doesn't go off-label, off-symptom the way this guy does. I also hope he accepts my insurance. The weird thing is I'm half-afraid to call & set up the appt when I can interview him. No, I didn't write that backward. We do have to interview prospective helpers even if they do have all those alphabet soup letters behind their names. The mere thought of having to try to educate another one virtually knocks me flat. I made it through high school, no college, but I have to try to teach someone who should have already learned what I'm talking about. If anyone's reading this, please don't laugh at the fact I'm close to crying right now. It's awful to have a dr who thinks it's okay to maltreat a patient. He likes to complain: "You are allergic to so many things, you are tying my hands." Yeah. It's my fault I have this d'd and cannot tolerate the things Big Pharma pours out. He likes to ask me questions like "You are so thin! Are 'we' eating?" When I let him know I'm aware I have hypoglycemia, so yes, I eat several small meals a day and even at that I've come out of sleep in a full-blown episode of shakes, sweaty, have to eat NOW he wants to know how often I might have to eat. "Around every three to four hours." That gets me a ham-actor roll of his eyes as if he doesn't believe me. And this man is supposedly med-school educated. I'm beginning to suspect he bought his diploma with cereal box-tops. Thanks for letting me rant. Lea.
