The doctors must be pretty sick of seeing me there but tbh if they were more helpful first time round I wouldnt need to be there quite so often!
I saw my GP to ask whether the constant headaches and depression were normal on cerazette, to which the first thing she said was "I want to take you off Cerazette" which is unusual given the thing they normally tell you is to put up with it for 3 months first. I explained I didn't want to come off it just yet because my pain had been majorly decreased, I just wanted to know how to manage the headaches and depression, and she said she didn't want to give me antidepressants because it was probably a side effect, despite looking at the notes in front of her showing that I've been in therapy for at least 4 years because of my depression. She eventually sighed, put her head in her hands and prescribed me with a months anti depressants and told me if I'm not "better" by then, then she's taking me off them despite the pharmacist telling me it can take 4 weeks for symptoms to improve.
I was skeptical about going on antidepressants but feeling too low to want to put up with any more before returning to work, and this whole appointment has left me feeling like I'm just being pathetic or even making a bad choice. Anyone else been in a similar place?
