Interview MDs, pdocs & therapists. Do not just accept whatever a GP tells you. One MD told me: "I don't know much about bipolar, let's try X med." I made an appt. w/another MD. She said "I don't like treating people who need mood stabilizers." With my husband's encouragement (he went w/me to some appts.), I kept searching. Found a great MD, saavy about mental issues. She got me a great pdoc who dx me & worked WITH me to find the right combo of meds/therapy. When he retired, my MD found me a meds specialist. He helps people balance their Rxs. When my great MD retired, I was scared but after 2 interview appts, I found an MD who "gets" BP/OCD/seizures. I have a neurologist who knows how to treat seizures. I am on Medicare. It's worth the time/trouble to find MDs who listen to you. Even when we are freaked out, we know what is working & what isn't.
