This is Dr. David
the neurologist needs to get on the phone and call up the GP and discuss your situation and why you need an antidepressant.
patient's care often is improved when doctors who are caring for the same patient communicate and talk to each other.
it is very simple to pick up a phone and to call a doctor
your GP should either call the neurologist
or your neurologist should call up your GP.
that was good that seeing a psychiatrist was helpful.
so you haven't been back to that psychiatrist?
No. No referral has been made
I asked to see the previous psychiatrist again but she has left her post now, and the Neurologist says that I should be refrerred to services close to home. My GP sya that there are none
your neurologist and GP need to call each other and discuss your case.
it seems like you are just being bounced back and forth and this is not fair to you.
next time you see your doctor have them call the other right away
while you are there.
we live in the computer age.
a simple phone call is not too difficult.
Yes, I agree with you. But real life isn't that simple. I think that Doctors can not real be much use nowadays. One must try and help myself; hence my message to you. In England and especially the area I live we have major problems with health care access. I have not where to go. Things are as they are. How do I help myself please?
exercise can help decrease depression symptoms.
going to support groups can help
or volunteering your time helping others can help depression.
I need to know more about your symptoms first.
I'm not sure your situation.
what symptoms are you having?
Thank you for your help. Exercise is difficult. Support groups I don't find easy. I do a lot of voluntary work; this does help a great deal. thank you
