Should I go to a psychiatrist for medication?
I’ve been seeing my regular family medicine doctor for my anxiety medication, but none of the pills I’ve tried over the past six years have helped- should I just see an actual psychiatrist for medication?

    Might as well. They might have some other ideas. But anxiety can also be hard to treat too

    It might be helpful. Do you go to therapy? Often times therapy can be just as important as medication

    Yes for sure! Finding a psychiatrist was an excellent decision for me. There’s so many meds that they’ll know about that your PCP probably wouldn’t think of.

    I would definitely seek out the help of a psychiatrist, especially if you’ve tried a lot of medications without much success. Psychiatrists will likely know a lot more about psychiatric drugs, their side effects, which drugs should be combined, etc.

    It may be worth a try but honestly in my experience they're not much help. If you've tried lots of medications without benefitting maybe seek options other than pharmaceuticals.
