Well had another neuro appointment today. At least I am doing well, but that makes me like going even less. The only reason I mustered the energy to go was so that I could get order to make sure my liver is hanging in there. I certainly don’t want it to fail on something not fun like Rebif! Eriksgirl asked why he doesn’t write anti-depressants. After a brief discussion he said he does, but does not write Wellbutrin. Of course his medical assistant did not make that clear. Apparently, this stems from the original Wellbutrin had a seizure rate of 1 in 200 as compared to the antidepressant norm of 1 in 2000. He said this has supposedly been fixed in the Wellbutrin XL (what I was taking), but he is biased against them now. Of course I would have happily tried something different had the MA made that clear. Of well, hopefully no more Solu-Medrol and the need for antidepressants.

  1. Don’t you hate miscommunication blunders like that. Maybe the MA was a Scientology Fan?

  2. mdmhvonpa,
    🙂 Excellent theory – I’m no scientology fan, but I like the silence during childbirth! 😉

  3. Sweetheart you are welcome to be silent… no need to wait until childbirth! 😉

    All my love!!

  4. Well on my way to being a stepford husband – do as I’m told! 😉
