Tell your Doc: At the end of the day your Doc relies on you to report side effects/effectiveness of meds. If you don't feel right on a medication you tell him/her and they should respond and try something different. You are a consumer and your Doc should be listening. If any of your Docs are not listening then I say maybe you should consider a switch.
