Soooo Thinking About Asking My Doctor About Anti Depressants. Not Sure On What To Say?

Soooo Thinking About Asking My Doctor About Anti Depressants. Not Sure On What To Say?

As TheresaLynn said, talk to your doctor and explain everything to him, don't leave anything out....they should understand and be able to recommend the right treatment for you. If you need to see a psychiatrist then do, it doesn't mean your 'crazy' just that they have a much better understanding of depression etc and can prescribe more than your doctor can. Good luck :)

Dr's can give you a questionnaire, just ticking the boxes most relevant to you gives them an idea of how your feeling rather than just trying to explain. They should offer you some form of counselling/ CBT before just handing out medication but every case is different and there can be a waiting list for therapy. Wishing you well :)

Asking your Dr for a referral to psychiatric professional may be more helpful. They have the correct training. Wishing you the best. Don't be afraid to ask if you feel down.

In my case, I was terrified to bring up anti-depressants. My psychiatrist suggested them after a few sessions when my symptoms began to find their way into our conversations, so if you just talk to your doctor about your general emotional / psychological state, they will let you know what your options are. It takes away some of the fear involved. Best of luck!
