It sounds to me as though you really need to find two things: a pdoc whom you can communicate with better, someone who's got a bit more of a bedside manner as well as knowledge of psychopharmacology; and a psychotherapist. The second one may be able to help you find the first.

Even if you had great meds, therapy is a very helpful adjunct. And a lot of therapists do understand the need to have a pdoc who treats anxious patients well. They can be hard to find, but I'm told it's worth it when you do.

When looking for a therapist, make sure you've found someone you're truly comfortable with. Not someone you think you should feel comfortable with, if you know what I mean. And ask about meds.

Good luck! I hope that helps. I'm another who gets freaked out by meds and pdocs, and I'm also just now trying out a new pdoc. I'm following his directions, and doing my best to give it a fair trial. I'm hoping it's worth it for me, and I hope it's worth it for you, too.
