    So, my docs nurse jsut called me and said he wants me on the high dose of Met for a couple months. That is fine. Then she said so just call me in a couple of months.

    He doesn't have an opinion about me having my period so soon? Just don't bother them for a couple of months? I mean, what does that even mean? May? June? What if I get I let them know? What if I don' I call? I am so unhappy with life right now. This jsut almost isn't worth it.

    So sorry. I understand how frustrating it is to wait... especially when you feel like your doctor doesn't care :(. Have you thought about changing doctors? Is that even an option?

    I started back on Met two days ago after being off of it for 18 months. My tummy isn't making the adjustment so well. Tips?

    Hang in there.

    I'm sorry they are giving you the run around. Time to them, does not have the same importance that time to us does. I'm sorry they are not taking this seriously. I'm betting they want to give the extra dosage time to get in your system, to see if it makes a difference. When I first started met, the RE didn't want to do anything else for a few months. I guess it is the same when the dosage is increased. Try to hang in there, and maybe you will see that BFP without having to call them back. Hugs coming your way!

    Thanks ladies. Chelle, when I first started my tummy was awful. Pepto is my best friend though so I just stayed with that. I also was in the bathroom a lot...nothing you can do about that if you have that side effect. And switching isn't an option for me. The closest besides what I have now is 2 hours at least. Guess I just have to deal.
