Dr. Kaushik :

see there are some questions which cannot be answered

Customer:

but i think

Customer:

i have answer

of it

Customer:

i think

Customer:

the problem

Customer:

was in fugue

Customer:

and

Dr. Kaushik :

but i can tell you one thing that you have been having anxiety at times which is too severe that it causes depersonalization

Customer:

in remeron

Dr. Kaushik :

remeron at high dose

Customer:

yes

Dr. Kaushik :

did not suit you

Customer:

i don't think this happened by it slef

Dr. Kaushik :

but at 15 mg it is working great with effexor

Dr. Kaushik :

i told you sometime back that theit combination is termed as california rocket fuel

Dr. Kaushik :

may be what you think is right

Dr. Kaushik :

but we cannot pinpoint the reason

Customer:

yes

Dr. Kaushik :

so better for you will be to avoid the precipitating factors

Dr. Kaushik :

like remeron at high dose

Customer:

ok

Customer:

yes

Customer:

and fugue

Dr. Kaushik :

and obviously stress

Customer:

so i can get out dissction

Dr. Kaushik :

try to distract yourself towards enjoyable things

Customer:

without such problems

Dr. Kaushik :

that interest you

Customer:

ok

Customer:

Customer:

about

Dr. Kaushik :

and let the drugs take their own course to tackle your problems

Dr. Kaushik :

things come around in a circle for you
