My Medical Update

The other day I had an appointment with my new psychiatrist. I was in her office from probably a good half hour, to an hour. We talked over everything that has been going on in my life, nothing too exciting. We came to the conclusion that since my gastric bypass surgery, I've been opening my Cymbalta capsules in order to take the medication. The capsule is too big to swallow, and I'm afraid it could get stuck. Well, the medication hasn't been working like it should, as opening it changes the properties of the medication.

She is switching me over to Prozac, as they offer a liquid form, which would be easier for me to take.  She's starting me off at 10ml, and will slowly increase it as the Cymbalta decreases. I'm a little nervous starting another new drug, but I gotta do what I gotta do. I just want to feel normal again. I've heard so many nightmare stories regarding Prozac. I see her again in two weeks... I will keep you all updated on how I'm doing.
