... HI all I have been suffering from panic attacks for over a year now. I recently was weaned of Lexapro, I was seeing a psychiatrist and realized I don't need the medication anymore.

... nd last night I had a bad headache so I took some advil. However, I felt really tired and blah. I don't know if its a reaction due to the advil or not. But my pshychiatrist didn't say anything to me about not mixing the two. I wonder? ... (8 replies)
... Hi Chantel- I'm doing pretty good. I'm glad to hear that thatis just the way it is in the South as I always assumed they were just doing that to me because I'm a yankee :p Glad to hear you're doing pretty good other than being tired.... As for getting off Klonopin... I was on remeron when I learned CBT (and on other meds as well for years before that) and never could have... (13 replies)
... Yea well, that's the South for you;) I am doing okay....thanks for asking. I have been pretty tired lately and feel like I cannot get out of bed, but I think that is mostly the Klonopin. My body is telling me it's time to get off and I just am not ready yet. Other than that, things are good. How are you doing? Chantel (13 replies)

... Thanks to all of you that posted. I now understand the difference and I think I will be contacting a phsycologist soon. I will talk to my doctor first and see if he knows a good one. Hugs to all and thanks again:) Chantel (13 replies)
... Hi Chantel- It looks like you already received a lot of good answers about the difference. Being the resident CBT cheerleader on here I would encourage you to look for a psychologist trained in CBT though there are Psychiatrists trained in CBT as well. Be advised that a CBT therapist will not be very interested in talking about your past and primarily interested in teaching... (13 replies)
... I support seeing a psychologist. Been to both, the psychiatrist was a kook himself! The psychologist gave me the tools to function as the, ahem....well-balanced great person that I am today!! :rolleyes: Yeah, right....but I have the tools to let me like myself and others a heck of a lot more. I'm grateful to have done it. Best to you, quincy :wave: (13 replies)
... A physcologist cannot perscribe and isn't a doctor, whereas a physciatrist is. Should you want to talk to someone maybe a physcologist is better but if they feel the need to perscribe then they could contact a physciatrist but you'd still remain with them. I go to a building with both in there although I see a physcologist and he contacts the physciatrist if he thinks a... (13 replies)
... A psychologist is more of a counselor, cannot prescribe meds. A psychiatrist is an MD also & can prescribe meds. Most of the Psychiatrists around here do not do talk therapy, they usually diagnose & prescribe meds & send you to a psychologist if you want/need talk therapy. (13 replies)
... What is the difference and who should I go to? I'm sorry this is such a stupid question, but I really have no clue :confused: I am interested in trying out that cbt(?) and seeing if it works. I also think talking to someone about what I went through will help out a whole lot. Any information would be greatly appreciated:) Chantel (13 replies)
