ůif it were *ME* in the situation you describe (all else being equal). Things have never gotten better for me with a pdoc when they've refused a reasonable alternative for arbitrary reasons. Who put her in charge of saying what order your problems should be addressed? Besides, ADHD drugs can profoundly improve depression (as threads just above this one show).
The point of getting a psychiatrist for me has never been having a good relationship with them, it's getting an effective med. In my opinion, this pdoc is obstructing that goal and things will only get more frustrating.
Good luck, Curt.
