Only a psychiatrist will prescribe medication for you. You will only be asked to describe the symptoms and circumstances with which you associate them. One visit may well be sufficient.

Answer 2
January, 2021

For medication, you need to go to a psychiatrist, not a psychotherapist.

No, without taking an anamnesis, nothing will come of it. many symptoms are non-specific and therefore it is difficult to say what they are associated with without seeing the whole picture. You need to understand how your disorder works, when it started, what is the reason, etc.

The selection of drug treatment is already a complicated process, and you suggest making it even more complicated. Perhaps someone will agree to prescribe medications for you under these conditions, but I'm afraid they are unlikely to help.

Drop categorical, taking anamnesis is not psychotherapy lasting several sessions. This is one conversation lasting from 30 to 90 minutes, followed by a prescription and a requirement to come to a psychiatrist, report on your condition in order to adjust the dosage / change the drug to achieve the best result.

Answer 3

You are a free person and you can do whatever you want and get the consequences of your actions. You can come and ask, the question is in professionalism, the adequacy of the therapist and in general how the stars will converge.

Answer 4

Medicines are prescribed in the presence of pathology. If you do not want to go to a psychotherapist, you can clearly tell your doctor about it, he will understand you.

Answer 5
January, 2021

Medicines are prescribed only for diagnosis or if something clinical is suspected.

In general, you can try. But one of these (medicines or therapy) alone does not give the maximum effect. Comprehensive assistance in the form of form therapy and psychotherapy gives the maximum effect.

Answer 6
January, 2021

The fact is that psychiatrists have no other method of therapy other than drug therapy. This I assure you. Therefore, it is with this formulation of the question that you will find yourself among your own. Only the psychiatrist does not need to say this. He himself will tell you something as an offer to drink a certain drug. They usually have no time to conduct social therapy or work therapy, and they are also lazy.

Answer 7
January, 2021

You can of course come. And you can ask. But the doctor will not prescribe medications for you (especially psychotropic ones) without indications, and indications are the establishment of a diagnosis. To establish a diagnosis, the doctor will conduct an examination. You can't do without it.

Hello, dear Sir (madam)

Psychiatric drugs, on the one hand, simply slow down the processes of the brain, i.e. nerve cells can die and change the hormonal and chemical balance, which after the abolition of these drugs, the person's condition worsens. In case the drugs are taken for life or incl. for a long time, you will hardly be able to get off them. Since your brain will tune in to them, as a result we get two forms of drug addiction: a) physico-chemical b) psychological. If suddenly, fortunately, you get off them, in this case, you may have repeated this movement twice as difficult. But it is not profitable for them to divulge this, because psychiatry is NOT a scientific discipline, in fact, and antipsychotic drugs, antidepressants, tranquilizers are mostly narcotic, not "medicinal".

Actually the answer to your question:

Let's say you go to a "doctor" - a psychiatrist to find out why you were prescribed only medications - so he will not answer the truth, it is not profitable for him! The maximum that he will say is "you have such a state" and that's it. In the worst case, your consent to hospitalization will be dragged out. Indeed, for the diagnosis, the appointment of "antipsychotics" and subsequently, the deprivation of legal capacity - and EXACTLY for this this organized criminal group is financed! Go for a "consultation" can only make yourself worse and fray your nerves, to which they push Normal people, calling them, allegedly, "patients." That's all. Can't help anymore (

Thanks for the question!)
