Lukkychrm42 Posted February 3, 2007 Report Share Posted February 3, 2007 Hey everyone,I'm back in school with 3 months until graduation! I'm also tutoring, and although I'm busy and a bit worn out, I'm mostly anxious to get through the semester. Now, of course, my meds are really not working. In the past week I've been taken off the labetalol, upped my proamatine to every 3 hours, and since Wednesday was back to labetalol just once a day. But It's pretty much... lousy. I do what I have to, but I use my seat cane a lot more than I'd like, and if I don't have it I need it. My cardiologist, Dr. A. in Virginia wants me to fly back to see him- and he knows I'm 2000 miles away. I know many of you travel quite far to see the doctors, but he's talking about in the next couple weeks, and while I know it's technically feasible, it's so much to miss with 6 classes including my thesis. Of course I don't want to imagine the alternative, either! I WILL finish this semester! So anybody have any clues what might be next on the list to try? I've done and failed toprol, florinef, propranolol, midodrine, betaxolol, and labetalol. The healthcare plan I'm on means that it's cheap to see the doctors, but medicine is limited coverage, and I'm already paying $650 for a month of proamatine, so i know procrit is not going to happen at the moment.I'm so stressed out right now- sorry I didn't mean for this to be a rant... of course, I was sexually assaulted last Saturday by a supposed friend.. but my wonderful guy came here from the UK yesterday. Just more things not to have the energy for, I suppose. Anyway, I know I'm not the only one here not doing wonderfully, but what other things HAVE worked for you guys?Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
