an ordinary doc will prescribe all the meds you need for anxiety and give you a physical
I dont think you need a psychiatrist, who will likely give you different and contradictory advice to that of the psychologist, I would see 1 or the other but not both
the psychiatrist usually needs a referral from an ordinary doc and is expensive, with a long wait for the first appointment
Hi there, I think a medical screening exam by your physician for anxiety is a good place to start. They can write RX for any meds. If they feel their out of their realm prescribing meds they will refer you to a psychiatrist.
A psychiatrist does not do physicals but mine does check BP on each visit.
I am glad your taking a positive step.........kudos to you.
