Does it have to be a psychiatrist or therapist or can a MD dr prescribe them
Hi menzie - Not sure where you live, but typically an Internist (MD), GenPractitioner (MD), Psychiatrist (MD), and often times a Physician's Assistant can prescribe the medication. In order to have the diagnosis properly assessed and treated, however, I would personally search for a good Psychiatrist & combine that treatment with seeing a therapist/counselor (they cannot prescribe meds.). There are probably other Drs. that can prescribe the medication, but may not do so due to ethical reasons, and because that diagnosis may not pertain to their specialty. Good luck.
