Hopefully you will trust a dr to know what medications you've been on. How else would the dr know? Tell the dr the whole works! ask if there's a better approach. And if you're ashamed that you're on meds you'd better start with that. If there is a problem in telling your dr about yourself, that may be a sign psychotherapy is in order.
