How Do I Go About Getting Back On Meds When I Currently Do Not Have A Doctor?

A MyDepressionTeam Member said:

Have you tried the virtual doctors? I use Piedmontbs,, for the main reasons 1. The only thing we have here are county clinics. 2. The one I saw after getting out of the hospital wanted me to meditate, no change in my medicine for another one. I use several of the tricks to help with stress and anxiety. But, when you ve been in a state hospital and really sick, you don't have the heart to wait for some help for another month. That seems like a lifetime to someone struggling. 3. My physical health keeps me from traveling. And, just my opinion, but you need a doctor who really knows medicines. They also have counselors.

I would ask your family or friends to recommend a doctor to you or you could to an emergency clinic and ask them for help and to recommend a good doctor for you to see. I would do this as soon as you can because the sooner you get back on your meds the better you will start to feel. Hang in there Eric and you will get through this and also remember that there is a lot of support right here on MDT. I am unfortunately not able to recommend a doctor for you as I am in New Zealand but I know if you ask around you will find yourself a doctor.
