-truly and if it was the drying out that did it - wonderful! I do not remember that I told you that my neuro was more knowledgeable than you, however, if you are not a physicians, it probably is the case. Also, I am not going to get into a pissing contest with you about who's neuro knows more. Not being a physician myself, I am not qualifed to judge the competency of my doctors - this can only truly be done correctly by his peers. I can only judge the results and at this point, I am trying different approaches that have not been tried previously. For me, I don't think right now I could go through a "drying out period" and I also feel that the headaches I am now experiencing are not rebounds, but exactly like my CH or yore. Victor - this is not to diminish in any way, your beliefs and experiences. I am very happy for you that you have found someone YOU respect. But the approach that has worked for you is not necessarily the approach that would work for me or others...it might be and I may get here, but right now, he's trying this. He is open enough and flexible enough to LISTEN to my wants and desires - I know this from my interaction with him Right now, I am only on my verapamil (also necessary for my hypertension) and lithium, which he is tring to get adjusted for the optimal dose.
I thank you for your efforts but I guess maybe I am having a little problem with your "my way or the highway" posts.
