I have this funny feeling that he might be "prescribing the symptom". Was his presentation such that that could be a possibility? He might be afraid you won't do well, so he's suggesting that you won't so that it won't surprise or distress you if it's true.

Looking at it analytically sounds like a good idea as well. I'm trying to remember the DBT skills Is there one that would apply here?

But in the end, remember that he is a psychodynamic psycotherapist. That's good in a lot of ways. But there might be a slight anti-medication bias. He's not your psychiatrist, and your medication regimen is not his to control. That he is upset about your meds doesn't mean anything at all about you, but more about him.

But, all that being said, I'd be upset too. Perhaps you could write a multi-page treatise on the subject for him to peruse at your next session. Worked for me. :)
