    Thank you both for responding!

    Allhart...Just curious, how many mg's of oxy per dose was prescibed to you?

    Mikie...thank you so much for all the feedback! I will certainly chech out the info you recommended...and whip out a PDR to find out what's up with the Wellbutrin and also why they have me on it long term...good catch! Thank you!

    R/E: Rheumies: My (regular) rheumie will prescribe only vicodin. She's not against oxy, even thinks it's a good idea
    but let's a pain managment person deal with prescribing. In fact she refers me away for everything...I don't feel she helps with anything other than the arthritis (which is managed...thank you God!) I have been SO frustrated with her which is why I went to Scripps...Glad I did! Here's the funny part: She's "suppose" to be the leading Rheumy in Orange county, even for fibromyalgia!!! She never once set up a plan for me to help control the fibro. Just said I'm "too" emotional and should see a psyciatrist. How do ya like THAT! (wouldn't even respond to my distress when I would fax her!)

    Go figure...
    Love to you all,
    Susan/Calif

    Because so many of us suffer from the slight seizure state, which most docs don't even know about, it always catches my attention when someone is prescribed an SSRI, a stimulant, or an "upper."

    I really like the "Worst Pills Best Pills" because they tell it like they see it.

    Love, Mikie

    I would like to know more about this "slight seizure" state
    Do you know where I can get more info on this...I have already read the article on Klonopin by Dr. Cheney.

    This is the first I have heard of this seizure state, but it SURE makes alot of sense! Also explains alot too!!

    I haven't ever looked beyond Dr. Cheney's article because he does such a good job explaining it in simple language. Also, because the Klonopin has been such a God send working for me just like he said it would, I haven't felt the need to read further.

    Sorry, I can't help. You might try a web search.

    Love, Mikie
