    Not the fun meds.. you have to wait a few weeks, then go back and say that they “aren’t really working” and ask for something stronger…. otherwise you’re just stuck with ritalin or SSRI’s or crap

    It is possible, quite unlikely, unless the psychiatrist deems medication a prudent course which is unlikely in an intial assesment. Also diagnosises take a while to reach with mental health issues, and are always subject to change – Best of luck with your assessment!!

    My guess: the medecine and the diagnosis later, after discharge ‘chances’ to keep out of the system.

    Go easy,

    I think it depends on the severity of the problem. If immediate action must be taken, then you will probably be prescribed medication on the first visit. If it can wait, you may be prescribed medication later or possibly not at all.

    Yes this normally takes place after only one visit.

    My first trip to the psychiatrist, I got a prescription.
    I go back every few weeks, though..to just check on how it’s working.
    I guess that all depends on who your doctor is, and the severity of your issue.
    For me, I had moderate to severe anxiety, and I got put on Zoloft that day.
    So, yeah..it really does depend.

    lets get you informed rather than be as a lamb to the slaughter
    what is paramount is to choose your healing route—— carefully– be really aware that the druggs/meds treatment for this can be damaging to you and go on for years with no improvement and massive damaging detrimental side effects to you from meds .

    All treatment recommended by the doctors should be tested and approved and quite rightly so.
    That makes sense
    .it costs millions of pounds to test and approve treatments because of the possible damage to people..

    Drug companies Fund most testing and will only and I mean only look at treatments, which show the promise of good deal of a profit, –they will actively dismiss any therapy which does not have profit potential— thus your doctor will only recommend therapies that have been tested with profit potential in them.

    Despite The fact that some of these other therapies mentioned here do have overwhelming benefits some, which have saved needless amputations, needless pain and trauma, and much loss of life.

    Drugs are not the answer for depression with mind altering damaging chemicals or any other mental illness.

    This is a fundamental principle try to grasp this fully –

    Have you heard your local doctor recommend, Massage Spiritual healing, Herbs, Light therapy, Colour therapy, the violet ray therapy, Osteopathy, Electrical Frequency devices. Karma therapy

    we have thousands of testimonials showing years of successful applications

    Each of these therapies can have a very beneficial influence on you.
    For much more info/ detail and research behind this protocol
    Go here http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/theholistichealingofdepressiongroup/
    Upon joining this group you will be sent a file giving the info –or go to the files section within the group and u will see it there

    Print this all off save it and enact it and share it — of course someone to help you get these therapies in your life is invaluable but do not be swayed by anyone trying for short cuts …
    1,get someone to massage your back and legs at least 3 times a week use peanut oil or a mix of 50-50 olive and peanut oil.

    2 use the violet ray machine an Edgar Cayce device google search this — 3 times a week on the other days especially on the spine….we use it every day with very positive results

    3.get a tent sleep out side 3times a week utilising earth energy – nature can help big time especially with how you feel how much energy you have

    4 study and apply good nutrition— adele davis books =protein minerals =iron essential fatty acids omega 3 6 9 protein etc

    5 ensure your thyroid is working well get it checked

    6 ensure you do at least I hr per day some kind of voluntary work when you are able..the reasons you are ill , or poor or have allsorts of bad things happen to you is because of karma —–usually from past lives but some from this one –voluntary work will offset your mistakes— how much it offsets well that is down to god and how much you do. Healing us is in direct proportion to the help we give others ie your healing comes with helping others achieve theirs so if people are doing very little in helping others —they suffer more and longer…and if they are doing a lot they get well faster….so now you know what to do ,,and like a lot of us are already doing being of service.

    7 be amongst people who are giving, friendly who have time for you who love you , choose your friends well

    8 be or get to a place which personally love or like

    9 get and do some work which you like or love

    10 ensure you do no acts which hurt or inflict on anyone –don’t want to add to your karma do we !!!

    11 spiritual healing and reiki find good therapists who offer this service in your area many spiritualist churches offer this for free as part of their vocational offerings to the divine

    12 think good positive thoughts, laughter, look at comedy, play good uplifting music,

    13 avoid at all costs exposure to violence, murders, suffering ,death ,tragedies, -feed upon good things uplifting things, things that feel like a breath of fresh air..

    14 Positive affirmation- that’s right programme your self in the mirror , thoughts are things words are things actions are things , all have influence, few people realise these things can have an effect on themselves .

    15 a detox —— toxins can influence how you feel big time

    16 hugs get plenty of them in your daily life you would be amazed at how people feel after a few decent hugs…
    17 loads of exercise running walking climbing but something which you enjoy

    18 rid yourselves of all aspartame laden foods and drink and many additives ensure =water intake

    A total cure however is tied up with karma so you can imagine just how important is the voluntary work.

    The psychiatrist will do their best to diagnose you on the initial visit, but this depends very much on what symptoms are present and the severity. It may take several appointments before you are given the correct diagnosis. You will almost certainly get prescribed medication to treat the symptoms that are currently present.
