guy123 Posted September 2, 2008 Report Share Posted September 2, 2008 Went back for a follow up visit today and brought with me my 12 pages of research (the doc I posted in the other thread). I told him how Zoloft made me vomit a few hours after taking it and I stopped taking it. My doctor told me the fact that I did 12 pages worth of research for tic treatment medicine is indicative of my OCD. I laughed. I then told him I did it cuz I wanted to know what we were talking about. He said "you're obsessed with it." I said "I'm obsessed with fixing whatever is wrong with me, yes." hehe Anyway, he talked about SSRIs but I said I didn't want to try any other ones. I also said I don't want to use neuroleptics or atypical neuroleptics because of Tardive Dyskenesia. He looked through my research with me and said he didn't want to put me on anything that I wasn't comfortable taking, which I thought was cool. I had it narrowed down to 4 drugs I wanted to try: Clonidine Tenex Marinol Topamax (inspired by the thread here about topamax) He said let's start with clonidine and I said I was fine with that. I told him I wanted to try marinol but I had heard it was ridiculously expensive ($700/mo). I said it's cheaper to buy it on the street. He told me "it does work but I won't give it to you so you'll have to get it on the street." lol. Maybe he'll write me a note so if I get busted by the cops I can say "but my doctor told me too!!!" haha. Anyway, he also said it's good I'm meeting with a neurologist later this month and he said the neuro will be able to rule out any brain problems (even tho that's what I suspect it is anyway). Cliff's Notes: - I'm starting clonidine tonight at bedtime (drowsiness is a side effect) and I will let this forum know if it works. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
