Is it possible to test Pariet, meaning to use it on a trial basis until you have an idea of whether or not it’s right for you or will a doctor not allow this?
If your goal is to know whether or not a drug is right for your condition, then the best way to go about things is to take the drug short term without committing to taking it long term. The problem with this is in some cases it can be hurt your moving forward, meaning it might hurt other medicational treatments effectiveness if you were to use them. You have to be very careful, but this is a good way to test out a drug.
The best way for you to go about it is with a doctor’s guidance of course. There are a few reasons why a doctor would be willing to go this route with a patient:
You can have a situation where a doctor isn’t sure whether or not a certain medicational treatment is going to work or not, because they aren’t used to giving it out. The last thing they want to do is start giving it out on a large scale before they can be sure of what it can do. In this case giving it out in small dosages just for a short period of time can be the best way to test it out. Keeping the usage period short is all about heavily monitoring you when you’re on it and making sure you don’t react to it badly. If the drug does do what it’s supposed to do, then they’ll be more likely to allow you to keep taking it.
It’s really going to vary from doctor to doctor. Some will not prescribe anything they haven’t given out in the past or can’t be too sure of. Yes, they can do their own research, ask pharmacists advice, get information from other doctors they respect, etc. In the end though it will be their decision because it’s their reputation on the line and the goal is to still make sure they do what’s best for you.
Taking a medication such as Pariet on a trial basis or any drug usually doesn’t happen though unless there’s a good reason for it. Uncertainty is at the heart of this and it’s something you have to keep in mind. You also wouldn’t want to get comfortable with the idea of just testing out treatments, because this in itself can be harmful.
