By all means, find a new psychiatrist and in the meantime talk with your primary doctor. You know your body the best and since you having such a good rapport with your regular doc, then it's wise to make an appointment to discuss all that you have been on and why the different changes. Make sure to ask lots of questions about any medications your doc(s) want to put you - i.e. side effects, benefits, risks, how long does it take to reach full effect of med, other options, etc. Asking questions is the only way that YOU can make the final decision of what med to be on - no matter what any of the docs say, we are the ones who make that decision, not them.
