This so-called doctor just discharged me from her patient list because I insisted on withdrawing from Cymbalta. This lady became frustrated when I made this request. She gave me a prescription to leave with but ABSOLUTELY NO advice on how to withdraw. She even said Cymbalta Discontinuation Syndrome did not exist and there would be no problems withdrawing from Cymbalta. My third to last appointment she compared the side effects I was experiencing from Cymbalta as my "imagination". "Wow, [my name] you have a wild imagination!" (word by word) I felt very uncomfortable during her appointments. She would only write the prescription, listen to my concerns, insult me by saying my intrusive thoughts and restless leg syndrome was something I "should work on". She completely dismissed all my concerns, waving them away with the pen on her desk. She repeatedly argued that I should stay on the medicine when I cannot! (The side effects were made very clear to her!)
She threatened me with admission to an inpatient hospital program when I told her I was having suicidal thoughts (a very unfortunate side effect of antidepressants). I told her I was living life well. I started exercising. I was starting my second semester of college and I was living life well. She dismissed my progress as well.
Her office lady is VERY nice! I feel very sad that such a nice, young lady is working for an extremely rude "doctor". Please stay away from this psychiatrist! She made me cry at home because of her rudeness. Never have I been insulted by a person who is supposed to work with me to help me recover from my depression.
She will NOT help you! She left me with emotional scars instead. Do yourself a favor and look for another psychiatrist! There are thousands better than her. Just like there are thousands of people as evil and rude as her.
