My pcp (primary care physician) does my pain med, blood pressure and cholesterol. He gives me a physical every year and orders all test that I need done. He is my main doctor.
I see a psychiatrist (pdoc) for mental health meds. Antidepressants and anxiety meds. Plus a mood stabilizer. But I see a psychologist for therapy. That is what really helps me. So I got three different people I see. But my regular doc is my primary.
Are you seeing both now? It really helps that way. I think that the psychiatrist can devote more to your mental health because there are so many other issues with your primary.
