It would be great to know or get an idea of how many of my friends, group members or non group members reside in the mid to northern most part of the Us And how much trouble and or headache they have run into with being prescribed and or staying on these types of medications. I use to live in the south east and since moving it has been a nightmare.
I take Xanax, don't know if that is considered a pyscho-tropic as tis a benzodiazepine, but I've no trouble as of yet. I've been taking Xanax on and off, for over 10 years.
I have, in the past, taken an antidepressant, and had no trouble at all being prescribed that med. I live in Michigan, which is considered (ridiculously so) the mid-west. Does that cover your question blaze?
I don't know where you reside, but perhaps a change of doctor/s is in order. If you've a difficult time of getting the meds you need, you just may be seeing the wrong doctor/s! This sounds inane and I'm sorry that you've been having such difficulty getting the meds you require to stay happy and healthy!
Hello blaze... I think it would depend on the type of doctor someone is seeing to get psych meds. Personally, when doctors (other than a psychiatrist) dabble in meds they are usually neither qualified to dispense nor able to understand mental health issues... puts that patient at risk for adverse side effects and symptoms that mimic other mental illnesses. That can so screw up a person's chemistry that permanent brain damage can occur. I may be going off course here just a bit... but it boils down to the doctor's specialty who is prescribing the psych meds.
Not every doctor is bad... but some of them have no respect for the field of psychiatry yet think because "MD" follows their name... they can prescribe anything without recourse...
I am glad you made this question conversational... it is easier to communicate with the issues and respond quicker.
