Okay, so I was just trying to look up the fancy pharmaceutical name for Portia [was bored, like to do nerdy shit, etc.], which my doctor started me on a couple of weeks ago. I was led to this Drugs.com page.
That page has one of the brand names listed as Alesse. Which I was on for a few months and bled the whole time, and I asked my GP for a different brand. Did he give me the exact same pill that didn't work for me, just under a different name? If he did, I am pissed.
Here's my last post, outlining all I've been through with this awful doctor; there's more details there.
Note: Please don't tell me to just get a new GP. There's a shortage of doctors in my area; no one's taking new patients. I only got in to this guy's clinic years ago because my mother was his patient and begged him.
ETA: I've also just called and left a message about his horrid treatment of me and lack of knowledge. Hoping to get a callback so I can file a formal complaint. I also have an appointment to see him on Wednesday.
