Does Anyone Know Can A Psychiatrist Diagnose Your Depression?

Does Anyone Know Can A Psychiatrist Diagnose Your Depression?

Also can a psychiatrist prescribe Chantix for quitting smoking. I quit over 2 years ago and just started smoking again! I need the Chantix to help me again. I started due to Severe Anxiety and Depression. My depression has been Severe also. I'm really hoping this site can help me get through my days. I struggle from when I wake up to when I go to sleep.

If you’re on Medicare or Medicad you can get the patches. Your Psyc more then likely will able to prescribe you WELLBUTRUN. That’s the other drug to help quit.
I quit awhile back but started up after some crap was going on.
I always seem to have some kinda crap

Ask your general doctor for the Chantix usually psych doctors just deal with psych meds I always had to see my general doctor for my statins as I couldn’t get that from a psych doctor
