Question Can you choose your own meds?

I'm not being medicated nor am I seeing a doc right now. I had one when I was first release from the hospital, only cause they made me go or I'll have to go back to the hospital. Now that I don't see a doctor anymore and my script ran out, I was on Prozac, can I just go and ask for a doc and tell him/her to give me what I want to take for meds? I would like to be on Wellbiltrim, it doesn't have the same side affect that prozac has. and lithium sounds like a real good and serious mood stablizer. I would really like to be on those meds rather than the one I was on before. So who desides on the meds I take me or the doc?

Re: Can you choose your own meds?

I would guess the dr would make the final decision. I would assume though if you explain what is going on with you and discuss what you think you want or would help you or whatever that he would definitely listen and maybe let you try it out.
