Depression and I am fighting literally to not hurt myself. I believe I have found my answer. I don't want inpatient treatment?! What do I do? I have an appointment Monday with my physchiatrist please help me
Is there a reason the doctor took the elavil away, If not call the doctor and let the doctor know of all the side effects you are having and you need to be tappered off of this medication don't worry about it one way or other you should get through all of this but go to the hospital if you even think your going to hurt yourself..you might be able to reach your Physchiatrist on call and let him/her know you can't make it until monday..but only if you really fell you need to call they don't get lots of time off but maybe one of the doctors on call well get you some have the bottle there so you can give the doctor all the info the strenght and name and the pharmacy and phone number so if you call you do not want to keep a doctor waiting have all the info..again if you think your going to do something to yourself go to the hospital right away. chuck1957
Why did you dr do that? Do you have any left? He's put you into withdrawal, something no dr should ever do. I think I'd go to the er and see if you get a few for today and tomorrow. If your psychiatrist wants you off of it, he can take you off the correct way. I would be sure to tell my dr just what he did to me if I were you. I wouldn't mince words. They should never ever stop an antidepressant abruptly. He should know better.
