3 doctors agree

In brief: As many as possible

There are so many disorders, that it is hard to generalize, but i believe they all can benefit from good cognitive methods.
There are also many varieties of tx. If your therapist thinks a med eval is a good idea, they will refer for a consult. If meds are not needed, they should be avoided imho. They have side effects and often understanding yourself better will help a lot. Find one you trust.
