This is Dr. David
what is your question?
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.
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.

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.
I have not seen any positive ratings on my answers.
Please do one, that is how we are paid.
Then come back
I suggest you find another doctor, a different psychiatrist.
