see below: An addiction psychiatrist is ideal, a general psychiatrist or addiction medicine specialist may also work depending on their competence. Bring any prior psych testing.

A Psychiatrist: There is no question in my mind that you should be seeing a psychiatrist if you want someone with whom you can discuss these problems and figure out the best course of treatment. Yes, bring all the meds you are already on and if you can bring past records or maybe a list off what you've been on in the past--all that will be helpful to your new dr. You know what to do! good luck!
