Yeah, it is a lot of meds, especially when you consider the other 3 meds I take (lexapro, desipramine, ambien). I do see a psychiatrist to get these meds, and she has been really aggressive with treatment and I appreciate that b/c I've felt this way too long. Antidepressants don't work so well on me, I guess.

Actually, it is often hard in the US to see a pdoc b/c we are short of them in general. There is lots of debate about letting psychologists rx meds b/c of the shortage of pdocs. Two states have already okayed it.

There must be some country with a good system out there--I'm not sure which one though!!

Best,

> Wow, what a combo. Most GPs won't touch anything unless its a SSRI for straightforward depression - let alone a stim! Anything else you have to get referred to a pysch doc for - there would be probably long waiting lists for. And even then they probably wouldn't prescribe anything that would be of use (well so I'm led to believe) apparently Tom Twilight had to see a private pdoc to get a MAOI. Pdocs on the NHS won't even prescibe MAOIs even. I guess the upside that all this healthcare is free, but maybe not that effective! Sigh. I don't know which is worse!!
