Can a psychiatrist prescribe antidepressants that GPs can’t access? Watch
Sorry, I’m just wondering whether psychiatrists can access antidepressants that GPs can’t because of their specialism and because they’re dealing with more complicated/severe cases
Awaiting a referral to psychiatrist however growing impatient, I’m struggling unfortunately. Question pretty self explanatory
Just a side note - it's not always about antidepressants with depression - often if someone is deemed "treatment resistant" I've seen psychiatrists try having someone on both an antidepressant and a antipsychotic/mood stabiliser - it can be much more effective than some of the older antidepressants. Plus the old antidepressants can have a bad side effect profile.
