"All right... (writes script) See me in one month."

I had a similar run-in with a nurse practitioner. (not even a full doc!) It was crazy, she was changing medicines almost every month. Found one that seemed to help, and she'd change it. First I was depressed, then I was manic and should commit myself, and then I was ADHD. Sheesh.

She'd only write scripts for a month so I had to keep coming back each month, so I can't do the mail-order pharmacy option. Each visit counts the same whether it's for meds or for talk therapy, with the same co-pay.

Instead, I found someone who doesn't take ANY insurance, but I pay once every other month for a combination meds-talk visit. I've since found out that the meds make life easier, but they aren't required to function. Changing my life has been the best treatment.
