It sounds like you've figured out your doctor's approach very well -- as long as you're functional and not about to do something drastic, apparently he feels that's good enough. I've had plenty of experience with GPs/psychiatrists like that; they don't want to take any risks, and would rather have you miss out on life than chance a medication they don't know a lot about, or that might conceivably cause a bad reaction.

Obviously, you want a doctor who's cautious in a reasonable way, but this one sounds much too conservative, and doesn't seem to be listening to you. I'm with the others here -- get a second opinion if you possibly can. There are some wonderful psychiatrists out there; it can take a while to find them, but it's worth it when you do.

Good luck!
