I, too am not a psychiatrist/psychologist. My Ph.D. is in education. But I do a lot of research, especially since my son died, and I have over 25 years of dealing with a flawed mental health system. Selecting meds is a crap shoot. Not evidenced based. You see the psychiatrist for 15-20 minutes. “Tell me the symptoms… Here, try this since the other med is not working:, OK let’s increase the dose level. Or, let’s also add another med.” And they try to say psychiatry is a medical science. Really? Do not trust the psychiatrist. there is much information on the internet. Unfortunately, we must take a more active role in the treatment of our loved ones. And if you have any doubts, get a second opinion. I have written elsewhere there are university hospitals which have psych departments and offer in and out-patient services and give a complete evaluation, behaviorial and physical.
