Dear *****ient, I understand your appointment but in this case you should go to a psychiatrist's office it is necessary to either increase your dose or change it to a mood and personality stabilizer such as (Zyprexa), risperidone (Risperdal), quetiapine (Seroquel), aripiprazole (Abilify), ziprasidone (Geodon), these are some of them
It is necessary to either increase the dose or change it.
other than therapy

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
