this was interesting to me today,

I saw a new psychiatrist, as some of you know , I had gastric bypass, 7 years ago. I have been on an anti depressant for 2 years, and felt like it wasnt working anymore. my psyche knew about my condition and ordered generic pills. nothing enteric,etc,etc. so my psyche goes in to her boss's office. And the boss comes in and says," maybe we need to look at if you are absorbing it all" I just blurted my gastric bypass classes and said,,,"why dont I crush them first and help absorption?" It has been working for almost a wek, and now they are thinking pf REDUCING my anti-depression meds, as long as I crush first.


Just FYI and food for thought

2. Crushing pills

Thanks for the info. I have reached a similar 'plateau' with my anti-depressants (it's dis-heartening, isn't it). You finally get your meds right and down the line they stop working.
I'll ask my psycho about crushing pills at my next appt.
It's probably not good for all meds though, for example, extended release... if they go into your system all at once some meds can be dangerous. It might be wise for others to check first with their doc or pharmacist, just in case.

Thanks for the info--glad you got a handle on your depression.
