I mentioned in the post below this one my new psychiatrist upped the dosage of one of my prescriptions and started me on another. I know he's the doctor, but I question the new one. Possibly the doubling of the other, too.
The new one is an anti-psychotic. I've been on those in the past and I know what they are for. I also know the symptoms that mean you need them... The biggest one being "racing thoughts."
As he was reading from a sheet of symptoms, asking me if I had any, the racing thoughts question came up. I said no, I do not have those. Although I've had them in the past, it's been a long time since I have.
Did my answer matter? Apparently not since he give me the prescription. Like a trooper though I gave it a shot and took the first one last night.
This morning I have the side effects I know so well from past experiences with this type of medication. Groggy headed, dizziness, feeling a bit zombified. (Spell check says that isn't a word.)
I hate when doctors get pill happy.
