Mine won’t do it. Thought I’d avoid a Dr bill and get a prescription when I get my checkup every year. I only go twice a year and can’t foresee any med changes. I’m totally stable and would prefer to see a general physician instead of a pdoc.
Maybe they do it for liability purposes. Just like how the place doctor I went to wouldn’t sign a paper saying I was fit for work and might’ve cost me a potential job.
Yes I call my GP for a prescription when I’m running short on meds, no longer seeing a pdoc. I’m in Europe, when the pdoc and I decided I was ready to be discharged he wrote some letter stating my condition and a relapse prevention plan to the GP.
Yes. My GP will refill prescriptions, but all adjustments and med changes come from psychiatrist. I’m very stable and also live in a small town a few hours drive away from the psychiatrist.
Same here. My “family” doctor gives me my prescription, but med changes must be authorised by my psychiatrist.
Mine will if I have no Pdoc , which has happened in the past.
My GP also give me a prescription for AP’s. I normally give him a copy of the psychiatrist’s script when I have visited the psychiatrist. My GP says that they are allowed to treat patients with sz.
It’s not common for the GP to prescribe AP’s here in the States.
But they do prescribe Antidepressants and Benzos for Neurotic conditions.
