Good idea...: If you are having acute symptoms, or things are changing rapidly, you may want to go directly to the Emergency Room. If your condition needs diagnosis and expert advice in selecting the proper medication, a psychiatrist would be your first choice. That said, there are many areas where psychiatrists are in short supply. Your family doctor or internist may be very qualified to help you. LGromkoMD
