Well, my pdoc was recommended by my T, who lobbied long and hard to get me to even consider meds. Apparently they work together frequently (or used to, before he moved, the b*****d ;)). The thing is that my T can't prescribe meds, being a psychologist and not an MD. So he needs to work with someone on this type of thing. They spoke every now and then about how I was responding to meds (apparently very well). I found it helpful to see both.

BUT . . . frankly, I'm not interested in what my pdoc thinks about my problems or how I'm handling them. All I want from her is info and Rx for meds. My T and I are working out the rest. I see my pdoc rarely (maybe twice a year), and only when I think I might need a med change. When I'm fine on the current dose, I call her when my Rx runs out, and she calls the pharmacy with a refill. This is perfect for me.

Good luck figuring out what to do here. Can you put off deciding about the more therapy-related aspects of the pdocs treatment until your T gets back and you have a chance to talk about it?
