Hi Willow, I don't know about meds or even much about doctors, but it sounds to me like what you are taking isn't working for you. Several people on this forum say that a pdocs, shouldn't be prescribing these meds in the first place. I've argued back that I trust my doc to prescribe for my daughter, but if you don't have faith in and trust your pdoc, then a) you need to see a different one or b) maybe you need to see the psychiatrist, so you can get meds that suit you better.
I think that professional ethics would prevent your counselor from recommending a pdoc when you are being seen by one already, but maybe the counselor can send you to a psychiatist--specifically to get you out fitted with meds that will work better for you.
My daughter's medication is working wonders for her. She works for Amazon.com--and they have just gone to 72 hours a week (they do it every christmas). Generally she's physically and emotionally tuckered out from that, but this year she's sailing through it.
Meds are like clothes. They have to fit. Tell that to whomever you see and that you want a better fit.
