I dont know if anyone has ever experienced this but i find it nearly IMPOSSIBLE for the few docs i have seen to prescribe to me an anti-depressant!!! Maybe because all my docs are male and I am female?? I just find this odd. They wont prescribe a sleep aid either. It is mindboggling.
Hello knittenkitten. I might suggest is confront, ask your doctor to perscribe you an antidepressant and if she/he refuses, ask to the reason why. Regards,pledge
You need to go to a phyc. Doctor's don't like to. I am on Ativan for anxiety and panic. I have been on it for year's. I worked good. I built up a tolerance and i am going to try to tapper off soon. You just need a small dose for anxiety.
My Doc is male and he will do antidepressant's. Find another Doc or phyc. Doc..
Psych doctors are more known for this
