Kaliii Posted August 24, 2008 Share Posted August 24, 2008 I had my "first" appointment with a psychiatrist about a month ago. And by first I mean the first that I wasn't forced into. Anyway, we talked for about five minutes...she basically just went through a list of questions and prescribed Lamictal,Ativan and Ambien for me. There was so much about my screwed up way of thinking/acting that I didn't even get a chance to tell her. She prescribed the lamictal starter kit for me, Ativan (that doesn't do anything except make me tired) for when I'm feel manic and Ambien because I can't sleep because I'm "always" manic. First of all, I was thinking, shouldn't I get more than five minutes to talk? (And it really was only five minutes, I kept watching the clock) I feel manic about 60% of the time, suicidal most of the time, hallucinate when I'm stressing out extra, have a eating disorder, and PTSD. So especially for the first appointment, shouldn't I get more time? Should I maybe make a list of things I think she should know and bring it with me next time?
