  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression cured, stopped meds 2 mths ago: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Depression with anxiety: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: Between my physhciatist's encouragement an advice, I was able to discontinue the anti-depressent medication (Wellbutrin). I feel so much more like myself since stopping this med. Even though I only see him once every three months, the things he would recommend to me, such as think of only myself instead of my entire family like I have done for 31 years. When I am not up to going out, don't force myself to go. If my family (husband and 2 children) can't understand this, then they aren't helping me in any way. his is just some of the adivce he gave me which was causing my depression along with the fact that I can't do everything because of the fibro, but everything he has told me had cured my depression. Unfortunatey, it has made me so aware of everything being off the meds, I see myself heading toward a divorce. I was told by 3 of my physicians that my husband is causing my sympotms to be worse because of the stress he puts on me. They all feel my weakend body will get somewhat stronger if he was no longer around.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Support mental / emotional health: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 60 min Weekly
Advice & Tips: I consistently attended Psychotherapy sessions, for periods of usually multiple months at a time, then I would quit, then start again a couple months later. This has been the norm for about the last 4 years, with approximately 30-40% of that period being occupied by Weekly or Bi-weekly Psychotherapy sessions. I do not feel any benefit currently from Psychotherapy, I have noticed transient, minor benefits in the past, however. I should note, that I never strictly complied with my various Therapist(s) requests/suggestions, which may have reduced the potential benefits of Therapy.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Support mental / emotional health: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Somewhat
Advice & Tips: This is the first psychiatrist worth his salt. He is an excellent listener and works hard and quickly to find new solutions that will work. Within one month of my seeing Dr. O'Neal I had much more energy and was generally less hopeless about life as a result. He saw me quite frequently in the first two months: perhaps once a week! Now it is more like 6-8 weeks unless I forget to make the appointment which is not a good thing to do I learned this winter. As soon as I realized I was decompensating, however, I called him and also four close female family members and one good female friend. Dr. O'Neal called me as soon as his nurse told him how I sounded and how I had responded to her list of questions about my daily life like: !) are you able to wash yourself regularly, 2) How is your sleep? 3) Are you taking all your medications? 4) Are you taking your medications at the time you are supposed to everyday 5) Are you feeling suicidal or had thoughts of suicide, etc. THis is a new practice they have adopted and I think it is a very smart one. This psychiatrist definitiely has had a huge impact on my daily life since I started seeing him last May.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Support mental / emotional health: None
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Very
Advice & Tips: I've been on klonopin a long time. I wanted to try and see if I can titrate off of it altogether and see what happens. I haven't been able to see a psychiatrist at Kaiser for a long time --- for various reasons. My old p-doc left over two years ago and since then I've had nothing but long waits for being assigned a new doc (months) and then they are awful and I ask for a new one and the whole thing starts over again. Dr. Corpuz was the last doc I had. There was one other before her that quit just a month after I complained to Kaiser that he was an idiot. Now I have been transferred to another p-doc at my request because Dr. Corpuz was such a cold, imperious, doctor that kept me waiting for 45 minutes on our last appointment. I was leaving and very upset and in tears when she finally came to get me. She had nothing to say. Just, "Well, are you coming or not." Below, I have ammortized what would probably be the amount I paid to kaiser if I saw my p-doc monthly. On average, when things were going well, I saw my p-doc every three or four months. Now, everything is a mess over there. I haven't seen anyone in six months and I left early because Dr. Corpuz was being to horrid and then she said she wouldn't be my doctor anymore. She would "handle my case" until I was re-assigned... I was not unhappy to be rid of her but the whole circumstances under which everything happened was a farce and unprofessional.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Support mental / emotional health: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: A little
Advice & Tips: It's hard to find a good psychiatrist. Medications will not cure you. Having to try one medication after another is common as well as trying combinations of meds. Also the efficacy of meds don't last forever. Long term use of some meds can have damaging side effects in your health.

  • Perceived effectiveness for An event: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 240 min Monthly
Advice & Tips: I have had only two sessions thus far in individual therapy. I see a Christian Counselor so my faith and belief is included in my therapy which is a postive aspect for I am receiving the full benefits from therapy. I will probably later be scheduling a cognetive therapy in the near future to coincide with the individual therapy that I am receiving. Therapy is a must in order for me to maintain a healthy mind set
