I wouldn't tell your doc what was said because it probably wouldn't do any good, but has the potential of having negative consequences if your doc was hurt and said something to the wrong person. Probably wouldn't happen, but psychiatrists are still people with emotions that get hurt just like us.
While I personally think maybe your friend was taking her beliefs about prescibing/taking multiple drugs farther than needed, I recognize that her reasoning does have a real basis. My friend recently went a doctor who prescribed two different drugs for her to fix some medical problems. The problem was that each drug was working against the other, causing her to develop another problem as a result. She went to another doc who was able to help her get back on the path to good health; when he prescibed his drugs he sat down with her and explained what they were for, what the side effects might be, and all that stuff. I don't know how pych meds interact with each other, mine and my friends don't seem to work against each other though.
