Hi/ I live in a very small town is west texas. I was seeing a Dr. for bipolar disorder with psychotic features, in a Skype-like environment, and she moved on. Her replacement is antagonistic and unsupportive. Unfortunately, this is the only option within 120 miles. I need an alterative for medication management, as I do have a psychologist here.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I've been seeing doctors since 2000. I lived in Denver until about 5 years ago. Current meds are: Lithium 300mg, Trazadone 200mg, seraquil 100mg, lamictal 200mg and clonazepam 1mg
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: Sexual and physical/emotional abuse as a child. Low self-esteem, high anxiety, depression.... from childhood. Anger issues, and a history of anorexia, well managed now
JA: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?
