    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I was diagnosed very recently, Monday in fact. My doctor prescribed Latuda, Trileptal, and Fetzima. the Trileptal I have but the other two require a prior-authorization. my doctor has not sent this into my insurance and i'm feeling like I'm on the verge of a breakdown. I just want to feel better and have this all better right now. I'm not a patient person. I feel like I'm going to cry or go crazy or both. I didn't want to go to work this morning, but I forced myself to get out of bed and go anyways. I just don't know what to do and need reassurance that everything will be OK I guess.
