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?

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

      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.

      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.

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