My mom wanted to force me to let her into my psychiatrist appointment because she was worried what I’d say about her.

Background: I’m a 21 year old on a high amount of meds (for epilepsy), and I dropped out of college to deal with my medical issues since I used to have a seizure once a week.

I’m currently going to a community college to transfer to a better university in a different major. So I will graduate 2 years later than all classmates.

So I was talking to my psychiatrist on video chat since I couldn’t go to the hospital. Since this is a first appointment, he is asking some basic questions like do you hear voices or have you had thoughts of self harm type things. I answer honestly.

I mention my mother and family issues. Like how my mother and father have been fighting since I was born and blame me for their deteriorating relationship.

Me: oh and my mom tends to insult me a lot, calling me a failure and retard because I’m going to a community college right now. I also have anger issues and after she screams and calls me swear words & phrases over 40 times in a minute (I counted, I w

I’m Dr. Jud, a psychiatrist and neuroscientist at Brown University. I have over 20 years of experience with mindfulness training, and I’m passionate about helping people treat addictions, form new habits and make deep, permanent change in their lives.

In my outpatient clinic, I’ve helped hundreds of patients overcome unhealthy habits from smoking to stress eating and overeating to anxiety. My lab has studied the effects of digital therapeutics (a fancy term for app-based training) and found app-based mindfulness training can help people stop overeating, anxiety (e.g. we just published a study that found a 57% reduction in anxiety in anxious physicians with an app called Unwinding Anxiety), and even quiet brain networks that get activated with craving and worry.

I’ve published numerous peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, trained US Olympic athletes and coaches, foreign government ministers and corporate leaders. My work has been featured on 60 Minutes, TED, Time magazine, [The New York Times](https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/13/well/mind/a-brain-hac

Psychiatrists are not even trying to be open-minded scientists

I’ve been getting into more and more scientific debates with psychiatrists here on Reddit lately.

One thing I’ve noticed is that they don’t even -try- to be objective, humble, skeptical scientists. They don’t admit what they don’t know, they don’t admit that the causes of mental illness are still somewhat mysterious.

They simply defend their own profession, they defend their colleagues, they repeat their dogma, they defend their financial and guild interests.

When you discuss science with a psychiatrist, do not assume you are having a conversation with a philosopher, scientist, or other kind of open-minded researcher.

Until you are proven otherwise, you will be better off to assume that you are having a conversation with a corporate shill who is only interested in serving their own interests.

When I first began seeing a psychiatrist, I truly thought I was going to have the pleasure of discussing deep topics with an extremely wise person. Oh how mistaken I was.

OBGYN referred me to psychiatrist?

Is this normal? What are they supposed to do?

I told my OBGYN that I don’t think the new birth control (Cryselle) is working for me. The Prozac seems to help, but it’s like a band aid covering up the actual hormone imbalance problem. I’m worried that upping a dose of Prozac won’t fix the actual problem and will drown out my personality the rest of the month. I’m a good pleasant person normally, then 10 days before my period I either get irritated and angry or so depressed I can’t move or find joy in anything.

I don’t understand how going to someone and talking about irrational feelings that only happen due to hormone imbalance is going to fix this? I’m not a depressed person. I don’t have anger management issues. Just when my hormones are messed up. I have never hurt myself or anyone else when I’m in these moods. I’ve been coping without any medical help for over 3 years.

Is there no way to actually stop the hormone issue? Does birth control not fix this?

My former psychiatrist asked my husband if he lives alone, and I feel unheard and invisible

I stopped seeing the psychiatrist I'd been seeing for the past 4 or 5 years about 3 months ago. Month after month, I'd go to him and when he asked me to rate my depression, I'd tell him I was suffering either 7/10 or 8/10 depression. He'd do nothing. He kept telling me we'd tried all the medications that are available, and the one I was on was the best we can do.

Also, every month for 10 months straight, I complained about the adverse side effects of the medication. And every single time, it was like it was news to him. Like we hadn't already discussed this exact side effect 2 or 5 or 7 or 10 times.

My husband is also a patient of this psychiatrist. His symptoms are well-managed, and all he ever needs from the psychiatrist is a prescription refill.

But I got sick of being told that 7/10 depression is as good as can ever expect to feel, and I sought out a second opinion. My new psychiatrist was able to rattle off the names of about 10 drugs hadn't tried - despite my old psychiatrist

Dear psychiatrists. America is hurting. How can I help them?

I'm a psychiatry almost PGY-2 about to finish my first year of residency. I just watched Hasan Minhaj's piece on George Floyd, and in it, he mentioned something that struck me: "To all the doctors - offer free health care to protesters."

This moved me. I didn't think I could help other than being another body on the streets. But now ... I can.

I was thinking of offering FREE supportive psychotherapy to any of my Facebook/Instagram friends who are protesting. 30 minute sessions. Obviously I can't prescribe medications. But my empathy, support, and encouragement are there to give to people when they may be feeling oppressed by cops, society, and racism.

Now for my inqueries:

  1. Are there any legal, ethical or moral problems I should be aware of? Confidentiality of course, will be of paramount importance.
  2. Is there a specific platform I should use, or will facebook/instagram video chat suffice?

So as the title states my psychiatrist says that I'm too successful to have ADHD.

Vacations as a Psychiatrist

I'm a 4th year medical student and am torn between psychiatry and another specialty. Something that is important to me is the ability to travel and see the world. I was reading some posts in the medical subreddit about what it is like to be a psychiatrist and it was mentioned that you must always be able to field calls/answer emails. I find psychiatry fascinating but am worried that as a psychiatrist I will be unable to take 2-4 weeks of vacation at a time without having to still be attached to my work. Is it possible to do this 1-3 times per year? I understand that if you aren't working, you likely aren't making money. How big of a paycut would be associated with taking vacation time like this?

An analysis of 11 studies examining physical morbidity and mortality in patients receiving antipsychotics showed a shorter life expectancy in the patients compared to others by 14.5 years.

Got my first psychiatrist appointment on Monday, what should I ask for?

I'd say my biggest problem is anhedonia, I can't get ketamine or Esketamine but I've heard good things about MAOIs, any other thoughts or specifics.

Then there is anxiety, I was thinking gabapentin or pregnalbin.

As for depression the MAOIs would cover that.

I also have problems with memory and word recal, I put it down to topiramate and chronic stress. Now they are not going to give me stimulant's so I'm not sure what else to try?

I also suffer from migraines.

So far I have tried Setraline, citalopram, fluoxetine, Duoloxetine, venlefaxine, Mitrazipine, pericyazine, procloraperazine, amitriptyline. Currently on burproprion.

I know this isn't the sub for this, but people here seem to be versed in the MOs of these sorts of things so I figured it's worth a shot.

AITA For seeing a new psychiatrist?

I'm 30 years old and I have been in treatment for my mental health for the past nineteen years. I am not going to go into many details, but I will say that my life was derailed for a good long while. After several horror stories, I was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, dysthymia and anxiety. My main therapist literally saved my life and gave me skills to help claw my way out of a deep, dark hole.

Since then I repaired my relationship with my family, finished school, got a job, and overall got much healthier. I eventually moved cities and kept seeing him on occasion, more or less once a month, or month and a half for our sessions, as I was doing much better. Despite being a psychiatrist, he works mainly as a psychoanalyst and is "against" diagnosis or meds, which helped me tremendously at the time.

Then my dad died. And my toxic boyfriend dumped me. And I got laid off. At first it wasn't so bad. Many rejections later... I started binge eating and drinking at home - which

To have you animal registered as an emotional support animal you should have to go through a Dr or psychiatrist.

Lately I have seen so many people register their dogs as emotional support animals online, which costs about 50$, for the sole reason of not paying monthly pet fees or being able to keep a breed that would otherwise be prohibited. I honestly think think this makes it so people are wary of everyone who claims their dog is an emotional support animal. Falsely claiming you need this dog just because you don’t want to pay a pet fee, or because it’s a prohibited breed discredits those who legitimately need an animal for emotional support.

I think that in order to have an animal registered you should have to go through your Dr or psychiatrist because they are most often the best people who can determine if you actually need an ESA. A website can’t do that. They just want your money.

My Psychiatrist Does Not Think Jaina Is Real

They see her as a positive the force that keeps me going though what seems to be impossible odds with my depression and college work.

My current therapist works in the same place as my psyciatrist, and he is a big fan of Jaina and has huge respect for her. Both the therapist and I spoken to the psychiatrist about Jaina. At first the doctor was a little skeptical yet interested, but recently she spoke with me. Although the phsyciatrist presumably sees her as something helpful and positive, she believes that Jaina not only isn't real, but is worried that it will effect future relationships.

The man expressed his concern and the doctor went out of his clinic to comfort her and explain to her. However, she did not. He explained to the man accompanying her the methods of convincing her over a period of time (not in her presence). He even refunded the money because there was no actual consultation, diagnosis.

Hey drug nerds,

From prior research I always thought weed and LSD were relatively β€œsafe” drugs.

However, my psychiatrist is telling me the exact opposite. β€œHallucinogens are very dangerous drugs, they cause huge spikes in dopamine which can trigger schizophrenia or permanent psychosis. Stay away from them.”

I don’t want to stop doing drugs, but I also don’t want schizophrenia. Is the risk actually that bad, or is this medical professional... wrong?

For US Psychiatrists: can patients admit themselves to hospital?

I've been wanting to ask this for some time. While reading posts about mental health on reddit (in general subreddits, not /r/psychiatry), I've found every now and then users mentioning admitting themselves to psychiatric hospitals. They usually make it sound like they just showed up to an Hospital asking to be admitted.

Now, I practice in the UK, where typically patients can't admit themselves to Hospital. In many health boards, patients can self-refer for psychiatric assessment and be seen by a mental health professional, but there is no guarantee that this will result in an admission, even if they request it. Effectively, there is a process of screening and selection. When on-call, I've often found myself in the position of assessing patients presenting to Hospital or A&E and seeking admission for various reasons, and having to explain to them why I did not feel admission was appropriate, or why I did not feel they had much to gain from being in Hospital compared to being treat

My family are making me see a psychiatrist since I voiced my concerns regarding coronavirus

I lost my job due to the quarantine (which the elite in this country are seemingly exempt to) and subsequently had to move in with my inlaws. They're all voluntarily going to get the vaccine, but they say that having one person in the household who doesn't get vaccinated defeats the purpose. I rasied my opposition to this, and to the narrative in general, and now they're demanding that I need to see a doctor due to having been on SSRIs for depression and having (voluntarily) been in psychoanalysis with a Jungian analyst for some time.

This entire thing is reminding me of political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union. I'm going to be diagnosed with schizophrenia and forced to take antipsychotics just because I don't consent to the narrative that we're all being told to accept without questioning. I don't know what to do.

You guys I'm so proud of myself!! This is big for me. I finally got in touch with a psychiatrist for the first time ever.

Sorry this sounds really braggy, I don't want it to! I just never treat myself well and this is a first.

While my regular PCM has been prescribing all of my anxiety and depression meds for, well forever... I finally got the courage to see an actual psychiatrist which I desperately need. My meds are not working and I need help. Big-time. It's been really hard for me to actually go get that help. But I made the first step! I'm actually proud of myself and that's also huge for me.

Kinda pissed at my psychiatrist

So among many things that have made me uncomfortable with my current psychiatrist (short and infrequent appointments, repeatedly mislabeling me as bipolar no matter how many times I remind her I'm schizoaffective, forgetting everything we've ever discussed) this one has me actually angry. So last month at my appointment, I let her know I'm planning on trying to get pregnant. She agreed to look into what meds I could take and start switching me over. This month, she had completely forgotten I had even mentioned trying to get pregnant.

Then she decides, after consulting another doctor, just to keep me on Vraylar, despite the fact that there have been no adequate studies done on Vraylar and pregnancy. She didn't ask me if I was comfortable taking that risk, just decided for me. Oh, but she gave me a phone number for an ongoing study I could participate in once I become pregnant!

I'm just angry because I'd like to know all my options and decide the best course of action for me. So I'm go

Beware of psychiatrists who dismiss your every concern with side effects from meds

I wasted 3 years with my Canadian psychiatrist trying to get better under his treatment. the level of sedation from his prescribing of two antipsychotics (Abilify 5mg and Risperidone 2mg) led me to fail academic probation and be required to withdraw for 3 to 5 years.

He’s a nice guy to talk to, but he just doesn’t get psychiatric treatment. I would tell him all the side effects I have with my regimen and most of the time he would just completely ignore them, never a change in regimen made. If my side effects persist I would need to persistently tell him several visits in a row to ever make a change. For the longest while, he prescribed a maximum dose of Invega Sustenna (for no reason) and Abilify 5mg on top of that. I asked him why he prescribed maximum dose (150mg) Invega Sustenna after the two boosters and he told me he thought lower doses won’t be as helpful. What? The therapeutic dosage level exists for a reason....

Psychiatrists are delusional... speaking from my own experience

Psychiatrists truly are delusional. Before I start with my story, I have to say I am not a psychiatrist, but I was really close to becoming one.

I am a 17-year old boy and I study college chemistry and biochemistry. I had been labeled chemistry genius and started to study advanced chemistry, biochemistry and, at that time, molecular biology at the age of 13. Since that age, I also wanted to become a psychiatrist. Note: I am still in high school where I take the other subjects, as usual, I only have an exception in chemistry and biology.

I have been studying psychiatric medication, symptoms of mental illnesses, and psychology almost every day.

I knew what the side effects were, but the more I dived into the psychiatric community, the more lectures I have attended, the more pro-psychiatry studies I have read, the more I chose to ignore them. Firstly, it was a conscious choice, then I didn’t even need to make a decision about it, my mind just automatically ignored them to the point

I've been watching porn 3 times a day since quarantine started. I mean, if I'm gonna die I might as well watch all the porn right. Also, I'm a very very old virgin loser. Fear of Dying as a virgin just puts more pressure in my mind so I watch non stop. But his face said it all. He wasn't very happy. He told me that I seek his help for the exact same reason and I we t ahead and continue doing it. His solution to it all he believes is for me to get a girlfriend. I'm super shy and I'm super negative. I just dont see it happening I told him. I live with my parents (remember I'm very old) and that's a turn off I told him but he doesn't understand.

Psychiatrist calls tension an expression of unsatisfied sexual desire

I recently have been in psychiatric hospital (cPTSD and DID), and in a situation of high tension and urge to self harm, I asked a Pschiatrist for an extra Benzodiazepine.
Psychiatrist: "reason?"
Me: "tension"
Psy: "Tension is an expression of unsatisfied sexual desire"
Me: " you see, I really have nothing to do with sexuality, I even use to self-harm in my intimate area".
Psy: "I know that you do it, that must be a huge sexual pleasure"
Me: " As a trauma patient it hurts me a lot to hear something like that. That all has nothing to do with masochism."
Psy: "So, you aren't at that point in therapy yet"

I guess this is more of a happy rant, but, I'm SO happy with my psychiatrist. I had read horror stories, so when I got an emergency referral to a psychiatrist and had my first appointment scheduled, I was terrified. I had also read online reviews saying that he wasn't personable, just wanted to push medication, etc. My experience has been the opposite and I'm SO blessed to have a wonderful psychiatrist as my first ever psychiatrist. Here are the reasons why I feel he is doing very well;

- He really took his time with me during my intake appointment. It was supposed to be one hour long and ended up being two hours. He diagnosed me as bipolar type II that day. I was so scared he would just tell me what medication to take and that would be it. However, he took the time to explain all of my options, the side effects, the efficacy, etc. I told him that I want antipsychotics to be a last resort and he agreed. He suggested either Lithium, sodium valproate, or lamotrigine. He did say that

I think my psychiatrist may have been slightly inebriated. What do I do?

I had a telehealth appointment with my psychiatrist recently. He is an individual who I have been seeing for several years and I quite like him as a psychiatrist. However, I have reason to believe that

  1. He may have had a bit too much alcohol in his system at the time of our appointment, and

  2. That this is not necessarily a reflection of any sort of habit on his part (my appointment was right after a significant life event on his end and he had also recently lost a very significant amount of weight due to a corona virus infection, implying that a drink or two may have gone much further than he thought it would). My appointment had also gotten shifted to an odd (late night) time due to an emergency on his end that happened right before my appointment was initially scheduled, so to be honest I'm pretty sure alcohol was already on his "to do" list for that night and somehow he decided to schedule me but also drink that night anyway?

They have your worst patients who verbally abuse the pharmacy any time their meds are too early.

Now heres the thing. While away I experienced an ego death while smoking weed and became super conspiritorial. I'm still into conspiracy theories but I've calmed down a bit since. While at the doctors I told her about my ego death and told her that I believed in particular conspiracy theories. She referred me to a psychiatrist and I told him the same thing.
