I still don’t know if I’m Bipolar or Schizoaffective, but I have yet to be able to be put on something else other than Abilify which is causing memory loss severely. I requested Lexapro or Vyvanse but she wouldn’t prescribe it since I was unable to take the full dose of Abilify and she wouldn’t refill my script without an appointment that she wouldn’t make due to putting me on same day sick.
I’m finally off that. She put me in with a new psychiatrist. I was also told to sign a billing agreement which was actually a release statement I found out later where my dad could be “a part of my treatment plan and have access to my records” that is not informed consent! That is a violation of my privacy. I’m so upset. Just because my dad left an angry voicemail didn’t give her a reason to lash out at me. She could have tried at all to help me.
She put me on Buspar and then took me out of the system for 2-3 months and I was left to fend for myself and figure ■■■■ out. Which meant withdrawing from Buspar due to side effects and not being in communication with anything but a ■■■■■■■ answering machine and a front desk that lacks communication skills because they didn’t record my 3 appointments.
This is what fuels my frustration. I am soooo sooo tired of being told for the past 10 appointments, hey wanna try an Abilify injection? what the ■■■■ I said no!!! I dont need to I take my medication even though it’s not enough on its own!!!
