I went to see my internist last month. Everything is fine, though he wants me to start tapering off one of my prescription meds. I dutifully start doing so, adjusting as necessary. I call in for a refill. He's apparently decided I can't have that med any more. At all. Along with my migraine meds, which is just ducky as I'm in mid-migraine. So much for the Hippocratic Oath. He never mentioned a problem with the migraine meds when I saw him three weeks ago. I now have to go in to see him again, spending more money, because he's high-handedly decided I can't have meds I've been taking for twenty plus years because- I don't know why, since he hasn't explained!

I'm getting a new doctor. This isn't the first problem I've had with him, but I'm damned if it's not going to be the last.

Wow, that Doctor is an asshole.

Hugs if you want them.

Yikes, that seems like such a rash decision on the internist's behalf. I hope you find a more understanding doctor.

I've already contacted two other doctors- both women- and hope to get in with at least one of them. (One's family practice, the other is also an internist.)
