Called the doc today to follow up and I'm not sure he remembered me. Good job, doc.
I mean--I understand that it's hard to know a new patient when you've got...however many he has, but when you have to ask the question, "Wait, have I already seen you once?" after trying to get me to commit to a near-appointment when I'm just calling you to follow up with my medication? *Dropping-the-ball motion.*
I mentioned that Stratterra was draining me and he said, "Just take it at night. I'm going to be gone next week (which I am too, so not much I can do there), and if you still feel tired or you feel like it isn't working, we'll have to start back at the drawing board." So...I guess that's the current plan...take it at night, see if I feel any better throughout the day.
Was kept up (not tired) really late last night, didn't eat lunch because of a mix of not-hungry and stomach-doing-flips, and nearly fell asleep during class because this stuff just causes me to crash. It's sudden--it's inconsistent, but I'll just be sitting there and suddenly, I can't do anything but nearly fall asleep. All my energy is just GONE. That can't be normal, can it?
And there's been no benefit so far. I know I'm only a week in, but jeez--for the hassle, you think it'd throw me something, right?
Alright. Rant over. Sorry you had to endure it.
