This : This is a great question. Sometimes patients reach a an unorthodox solution to a difficult problem, and as you are experiencing, the dedicated doctor who help you leaves. The first thing you could suggest is for your current psychiatrist to speak with your former psychiatrist. Perhaps they can come to a mutual understanding about continuing the medications that have helped you. If that doesn't work, you should contact either the american psychiatric association or the utah psychiatric society for a list of psychopharmacologists in your area. If there is no one close by, it could be worthwhile for you to travel to a university for a specialized consultation in coordination with a local psychiatrist. The university of arizona and ucla both have great psychiatry departments. In addition, steven stahl, a pre-eminent psychopharmacologist, is based in california and might be a good person to go to for a consultation. Thanks for this important question. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If you work with a psychiatrist, you must have 30 days supply of your medications, and also practice behavioral exercises to reduce symptoms. ...Read more
