I had just met this psychiatric nurse, after one consultation 30+ minutes. And just a week and half earlier I had suicidal thoughts. I went into the appointment and wanted to sound knowledgeable .... But really I'm so confused and depressed and anxious and having panic feelings. I was taking 10 mg buspar and 7.5 mirtazapine from another practitioner in her office. In addition to the no refill 60 tabs of 1 mg clonazapam, she also prescribed Effexor -- low dose. I'm hesitant to start the Effexor too, I don't know what's wrong with me, but I'm overwhelmed. My regular doctor suggested I see a psychiatrist, and the only people on my insurance plan are these two nurse practitioners and a psychiatrist who I couldn't get in to see for weeks so I went to see these nurse practitioners with speciality in psychiatry.
Yes, when directed to do so by the Dr.
If you're taking it twice a day you need 60 for a month. What about the meds you were on.. You weren't on enough Buspar. I would have just increased the doses of what you are on rather then try something totally different. The mirtazepine wasn't enough to for a goldfish, lolol
Yes it is common. However the nurse needs to discus it with the doctor. If the doctor isn't there the nurse will call your doctor or talk to the doctor on call.
