Trying antidepressants again

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

I have gotten back to work with my trainer, although I think every week something has caused our workouts to be canceled at least once - MLK holiday, ridiculously cold weather, and so on. But I am still depressed, and am going to try a new antidepressant. Maybe it won't make me gain weight (my shrink says it shouldn't). It's called Provigil (generic name modafinil) and I have never heard of it. We shall see.

    Insurance company said no. So I will be trying a different antidepressant; with luck I can get to the doctor's office to pick up the prescription tomorrow. In the meantime my right knee has quit working; I had an appointment with the orthopedist today but their power went out, so that has to wait until tomorrow too.

    Well, it looks like I may not know for a while; my insurance company requires precertification for this particular medication. I did do some reading about it, and it looks like it may be promising, so I hope they approve it.
