Is it acceptable to make an appointment with a GP and tell him/her about anxiety/depression problems and expect something to be prescribed? I don't like seeing psychs because it is embarressing to go to the pysch branch parts of buildings and then you start getting weird looks +they cost more. I want Xanax, or an antidepressent that's not Zoloft. Would GP go for something along these lines w/ a first meeting?

Re: Gp

It's possible a GP will prescribe something different. Mine was good with me although I also seen a phychiatrist as well. I hope you find the right med that works for you.

Re: Gp

My GP is awesome with stuff like this. He has prescribed me with my meds. I did start go to a therapist after seeing the GP. I would say talked to your GP and see what he says.

Re: Gp

I kind of had in mind what I would like to try, when I finally got the nerve to ask my doctor. I took hubby with me and I told the doctor I wasn't very happy and hubby pipped up and said that he was starting to watch for flying dishes in the mornings. My GP said no problem and I got a low dose of effexer and it is working wonderfully for me. In 3 days I move up to 75 mg. and that is where I will stay. Thats just me though. I have been treated for fybromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritus and my depression stems from this. You may do well with something different.
