How do I prepare myself for a consultation? 


Meeting a psychiatrist is like going to any other doctor's office. Start telling him symptoms and problems that cause you distress. Use examples to describe your symptoms. Over time, you may discuss your past and how it is connected to your current situation. Give an approximate time frame of when you first noticed the symptoms. 

 

If it is difficult, ask people closest to you when problems might have started. They may have noticed things you didn't

 

Treatment for your psychiatric illness is in many ways like treating a physical illness and will be individualized based on the symptoms and situations. Treatment isn't finalized during your first meeting with a psychiatrist

 

He will develop a plan to manage your symptoms. Every patient gets different individualized treatment plans to produce optimum results with least side-effects. Hence medicines and dosages will change frequently. There is no singular treatment for all and different psychiatric illnesses are treated differently. 


Your psychiatrist will recommend reviews that will range from weekly, monthly or three monthly as required. 


Treatment of psychiatric illness may be brief or lifelong. Getting proper treatment improves the quality of your life in most people. 

 

 It should include all information about medical and psychiatric illnesses. This will save you costs by not repeating investigations unnecessarily. 

 

 Quick prescriptions before a proper diagnosis gives poor results.

  • Do not stop medications without your doctor's instructions.
  • When you stop medications suddenly, the illness comes back immediately in most cases or in few weeks. 
  • You will have to restart medications again, starting from the beginning. 
  • It takes two to three week's time again to control the symptoms.
  • Make sure you visit the doctor at least once in 3 months always, even if you are symptom-free, to check on medicines, dosages and side effects.

Stress related problems Vs Psychiatric illnesses: Any form of stress can cause anxiety or sadness. However, in most instances, people cope up in a short time span without any or minimal external help and does not take more than three months to do so. If anxiety or sadness become severe, they talk to their friends, family or others to learn how to cope with it. If it becomes prolonged or if the person gets thoughts of harming himself or others, psychiatric help is necessary. They are generally called Post-traumatic-stress disorder (PTSD) to differentiate it from the other psychiatric illnesses that are more severe, prolonged, and due to inherited chemical damage of the brain.
