Our expert says:
Very annoying, and it sounds like a foolish decision by Discovery, especially considering your history ofother drugs not helping. I hope your doctor helped by writing a strong recommendayion for the Geodon, in view of your history -- they'd expect him to do so. I consider it part of a doctors ethical and professional obligations to write a strong motivation for the medicine he recommends for you, to your medical aid. Lodging a complaint seems understandable as his response sounds disappointing and inadequate. How abou geting a second opinion from another shrink who might be less apathetic, afer first requesting, as is your right, a copy of your medical records ? Maybe try approaching Dr Bomberg he head honho at Discovery, who seems a sensible guy ?
