Very annoying, I know, but basically good practice. We don't want them dishing out serious meds too easily. And if the doc who knew you has left, its important in the larger scheme of things to pick a new doc from the practice and make sure HE gets to know you --- plan the consultation with a summary of what you want him to know, and get your R 280's worth. And if on a proper assessment he might decide you can gently come off the Cipralex now, well, that could be a net saving !
