Has PCP changed meds due to age?
I have “fibromyalgia”. 35 years now. My old doc prescribed me Ambiem, xanax and trazodone to sleep through the pain. New doc says I can’t have those now because of confusion and falling, neither I have problems with. Has anyone else had this happen? What are some suggestions for change other than SSRI’s? I am starting this week, tapering off these meds because they seem to be too much trouble and the situation is causing me anxiety that I have not had for years. New doc has refused me as a patient now because I tried to have a conversation about it but she took it a questioning her authority. Nurse practioners seem to be replacing family docs in my area. I think if I discontinue these meds I can be seen by one. Comments welcome.
