Not to be a downer, but they have recently cracked down on docs and they won't let them refill scripts without seeing patients. I know I hear in my doc office that they check for last visit before they refill and I have to see all my docs regularly so I can get refills - which means I spend a lot of time *ugh* in doc offices. So it might not be him - but a clinic rule to prevent abuse. See if you can see another doctor who has other hours that are more helpful to your schedule?

The entire vaginal area is very itchy and if I scratch or rub the skin at all I often give myself one of these tears. It seems as if the skin is very thin. There are no other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Symptoms</span> that I am aware of. I have had blood work and a biopsy done. Some of the things that I was tested for were; genital herpes, lichen sclerosus, lichen simplex chronicus, lichen planus, vulvar vestibulitis. All results came back negative. The biopsy tested positive for "healing ulcers".
So, this word of advice to anyone whose dog is on phenobarb, who is terrified by <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Symptoms</span> that mimic an aggressive brain tumor--don't panic. It might be a tumor (heck, my dog still might have a tumor), but it is also possible that it's the phenobarbital. Try to keep a log of what your dog does every day. Does he stop tripping one day? Does he manage to stand all through dinner one day? The progress is very slow. But if it's just drug side effects, it will get better.
