You said:
"You said it right, except you interpretted it backwards. That is, the patient is the boss, the doctor is not. Who is paying who anyway? YOU are the paying customer. HE is providing a service that YOU are paying for. HE works for YOU, you don't work for him. The customer is always the boss. Just because it happens to be mental health instead of cars or retail doesn't change anything. You are in charge. He is there to help you figure things out, make suggestions, and monitor your progress on joint team decisions that you both make together."

Unfortunately mtdewcmu(mountain dew?) is correct in that most of my symptoms sound like depression, so it only makes sense from the doctors prospective to try some of the standard first line treatments. I've already failed two SSRIs recently and bupropion, but never tried an SNRI. Luckily my doc doesn't see the point in trying to drugs that are very similar. For instance if someone fails Zoloft he won't try prozac he'll move to an SNRI, and if that doesn't work add bupropion or ritalin(a drug that also failed).

But he does seem old school like he is the boss. When I started talking about receptor antagonists and things like that he told me I have OCD. I know I don't have OCD and no one around me believed that he said that. It was almost like saying, "stay out of my way."
