Do you have a relationship with a primary physician? Often they will give you a supply to carry you over. You may also have an outpatient mental health center or outpatient psychiatry department of a hospital nearby which accepts walk-in's.

Let me know.

Thank you. As stated in the previous post I do not have a PCP. When you write "outpatient psychiatry department of a hospital", it generally isn't just a floor with some doctors sitting around, obviously...I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this. Outpatient mental health clinics generally require an income threshold that I do not qualify for, to the extent of my knowledge.

Hospitals have outpatient clinics for different specialties including often for mental health. You call the hospital and ask if they have walk in hours in the outpatient department or evaluation center.

I had a situation once where I was having problems with insomnia -- MAJOR problems. I went to an urgent care center and asked if they could help me. They gave me a one month supply to last me till my doc came back from vacation. Just a thought.

Oy, that's bad. I really figured most insurances covered that. I guess I'm lucky.

Yeah, you are very lucky. (Both of us are for even having health insurance)

My doctor won't refill my SSRI, but he will taper the dose. He doesn't want to refill my medication for 3 months until I get my new insurance because he believes I am taking advantage of him, or trying to kill myself (?), or both.

Sort of lost his logic here. Does this make sense? Just wanted to check. Thanks.

Thanks. Also, what is a reasonable amount of time for a doctor to return an email?

Could be withdrawal off Wellbutrin. If so, it should go away within 2 weeks.

Oh ok so I'll just feel a little sick for a bit right? No risks of seizure, fainting, etc that would require a doctor? I read something on google about seizures but I dont know if it's so accurate. Thanks again

Can get seizure if take too much Wellbutrin. If Wellbutrin withdrawal, should not be medical emergency.

Forgot to add- after stopping Wellbutrin I've been experiencing the sensation of bugs crawling under my skin (didn't have this before). Should I just stick it out like you mentioned before?

OK, this is no need to see a doctor, right? And by "bugs crawling" I just meant a pins and needles sensation. Sorry for the strange lingo.

No big deal but over Shabbos we found a family of millipedes in our bedroom (the large bugs with the hairy legs, fyi). Hilarious when you have a pins&needles [like bugs] feeling and actual bugs infesting the house.

Just kidding. It was't hilarious. It was terrifying.

"Pins and needles" was neuropathic pain. Thanks for your help
