Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Thank you for your question, and I can see the frustration this has caused you. Based on your question, the nurse practicitioner is trained only to prescribe medications for symptoms under the supervision of an attending doctor. If you are looking for a therapist, you may need to seek out a psychologist. In terms of the nurse practitioner's response to you regarding medications, unfortunately, this nurse does have the right to not prescribe medications if she felt that the medications will cause more harm than good. Unfortunately, she does not seem to have a nice bedside manner in terms of informing you of this. If this nurse pract is not able to provide the care you are seeking, she should have referred you to another provider.
she says she does therapy also, like new agey stuff, i just cant get out this depression now
since she said what she did
Although she may say she does therapy, she may not be qualified to do so. How else can I help you at this point?
