When I was on medication, I really needed it b/c I had really bad anexiety problems. This doctor was very expensive, I couldn't make it to her apt.

b/c I couldn't afford it so I called a week before and cancelled. Apparently her receptionist made a mistake and waited til the last minute to tell the doctor I wasn't coming.

The doctor refused to see me as a patient and refused to refill my prescriptions. I went through really bad withdrawls and I was almost in an unstable condition because of her.

Now I took myself off all medications and I will never rely on pills OR doctors again because of this B**CH. THANK YOU!

The Hipocratic Oath does not mean the Doctor should go broke

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, September 23, 2005

Apparently, you don't want to PAY for your meds, or your appointments. This is why the Doctor refused to see you. She has a BUSINESS to run, not a charity. Of course, charities need money to operate also. Be glad you're off those pills and get on with your life.

Abrupt discontinuance of use of some anti-depressants can cause withdrawal symptoms not related to addiction

AUTHOR: Elizabeth - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, September 23, 2005


FYI - the abrupt discontinuance of some medicines used to treat depression and/or anxiety (and are not narcotics) can cause withdrawal symptoms including nausea, headaches, nervousness and sensory disturbances (including electric shock sensations). If Amanda was taking one of these drugs and stopped using it because she had no more, rather than tapering off slowly under a physician's supervision, then it is not surprising that she had a bad time. And, even if she was taking prescribed anti-anxiety medicines that can be addictive, the abrupt discontinuance of them can also cause withdrawal symptoms, but that doesn't mean the person was addicted (i.e., that she had a physical craving for the drug), it's more about the body's biochemical reaction to the sudden lack of the chemcials contained in the medication.

Perhaps you should withhold your judgments until you have all of the facts.

Amanda - It is unfortunate that you had a bad experience with the doctor, but, I have to say, I feel like there must be something missing from your posting. Had you cancelled other times on short notice? Unfortunately, many practitioners have strict cancellation policies, but usually they require that you pay for the missed session if you don't give sufficient notice under their policy. If you cancelled several times on short notice, thus causing the doctor to have appointments she couldn't fill, she might be justified in refusing to see you. But, given that she had to know what the possible effects of discontinuing your meds were, it is too bad that she didn't at least speak to you about them.

More importantly, are you feeling better?
Perhaps your local mental health association can help you if you need it.

I was rejected by this doctor after putting me on meds and she refused to see me. She is in my credit report using a collection ageny trying to get $981 I do believe all doctors take an oath to help all their patients not turn them away and try and get money from them.

You should be thanking her

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, September 23, 2005

Now that you are no longer on drugs, you'll see what life is really like. After awhile, you'll learn to get over all of life's little thrill rides and become a productive member of society.

The fact that you had withdrawls shows you were addicted to whatever you were on. After you get through this, you should send the Doctor a thank you note and apologize for this posting. Good luck.
