Our expert says:
Its a psychologist that cannot write prescriptions ; a psychiatrist, being a fully trained doctor, CAN write prescriptions. But OK, I see where the serlife comes from. Some ADS can give one mild nausea in the early stages. Most side-effects are worst in the first 10 days or so, then tend to reduce or go away. All meds need at least a certain level in the body to have any chance of working, so one only starts on a lower dose temporarily to increase it after you're settled with side-effects ( if that happens to be a problem ) You might well have less side-effects on a different AD, and some, being now available in generic form ( chemically dentical but at lower price
) can also provide useful savings.
