Barbarannamated Posted October 14, 2011 Share Posted October 14, 2011 The absolute worst ones come from my MD husband. He loves to disect studies and determine the quality of the design, selection bias, blah blah blah, and then make a determination if it qualifies as the gold standard 'Evidence Based Medicine' by which all treatment will be approved or not (he does Utilization Review). I've tried to explain what's going on w me for months. Yeserday, he sent text: "so how long until the drug is out of your system?" so that we will know when I'll be all better. It is really good that I am 2000 miles away! Pristiq tapered over 8 months ending Spring 2011 after 18 years of polydrugging that began w/Zoloft for fatigue/general malaise (not mood). CURRENT: 1mg Klonopin qhs (SSRI bruxism), 75mg trazodone qhs, various hormonesLitigation for 11 years for Work-related injury, settled 2004. Involuntary medical retirement in 2001 (age 39). 2012 - brain MRI showing diffuse, chronic cerebrovascular damage/demyelination possibly vasculitis/cerebritis. Dx w/autoimmune polyendocrine failure.<p>2013 - Dx w/CNS Sjogren's Lupus (FANA antibodies first appeared in 1997 but missed by doc). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
