This is Dr. David

what is your question?

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

Let me give you an example.

alphagan is an alpha adrenogenic agonist.

Monopost is a prostaglandin analogue.

The new drug regimen has a completely different set of receptor actions.

Clearly, your new specialist feels that by approaching the situation differentily, in receptor terms, that you will have more effective treatment.

You previous doctor apparently did not address this or acknowledge it.

Now, I am guessing, as we don't work with your doctor

But that is the best explanation.

Hi

Please ignore my post above.

That was a light glitch and meant for another post.

If mirtrapine has not worked for 6 months, then it is the wrong medication.

Does your doctor not understand this?

There are many, many choices for medications.

What type of doctor is in charge?

You should be working with a psychiatrist, as they work with the appropriate medications daily.

Please let me know if you have more questions. Or information.

its the side effects that are the problem do you believe me when i say in getting these
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the side effects are making me panic
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 1 year ago.

I do believe you.

And that is why the medication should be changed.

You can see a psychiatrist, or if you are seeing a psychiatrist, then a different one for a second opinion.

Don't try to do it on your own.
