Its only taken since january.

Will it be more like seeing a dr or a councillor? What sort of questions do they ask and how long will it be?

Am I likely to have my medication changed? and if so do you have to go to your drs for it or can you get it there?

thanks

i would say it is more like a mixture of a doc and counsellor. might take half hour maybe more. you will prob get prescription from them , well i do. tell them as much info as you can anyway. good luck

It really does depend on your circumstances Mickey whether or not you'll get your medication changed. If he/she feels your not on the right ones because of something or other, then they'll change them.

My Psychiatrist faxes over my prescriptions to the GP/Chemist that work together, I pick my medications up from there.

Good luck, you'll be fine - don't worry.xx
