Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
In general the opinion of the psychiatrist is higher, since he specialized in mental illnesses. But the general practitioner often knows his patient better and might decide nevertheless to prescribe antidepressants, being sure that the patient will profit. He should explain this, though.
