Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
I believe I may be able to help you with your concern
There are multiple ways to continue to get your medications. You can try going to the ER or Urgent care to get an emergency supply until you find a new GP
Also pharmacies understand some issues regarding GP's that leave their practice and will extend your refills until you find another GP
Will a gp fill psych meds...I knew my other doc for 10 years, he trusted me.
It depends, what psychiatric medications are you taking?
Zoloft 200mg ativan 2mg 4 times a day...I have ptsd panic disorder ocd bipolar 2
Okay with those medications, a GP will definitely be able to prescribe them for you, but the GP may also refer you to a psychiatrist, so they may only prescribe a limited supply until you see the referral for a psychiatrist. Also you can try using this online resource that can provide E-Prescriptions. I have never used it, but it was referred to me by a colleague.

I can re-type it for you

Did you see what I wrote above?
I can get my meds on line????
Well there are reputable online pharmacies where you can get your medications with a valid prescription. Also this website allows you to consult with a medical doctor online and they may provide you with a prescription as well.
Ok, I just need to know that legally someone has to treat me, right? I cant be turned away?
Yes someone will have to treat your appropriately. Usually if you go to a GP, they will prescribe you the medications if you have been prescribed them recently in the past
Also here are a couple links about finding reputable online pharmacies if that is the route you tak
So the new doc in the office will prescribe them? Sorry Im in full blown pac mode
They should definitely be able to prescribe them. Most GP's usually stay away from complicated psychotic disorders with prescriptions and leave that to psychiatrists, but your medications are pretty standard. Just bring in your past prescription bottles to show that you were prescribed these medications to further demonstrate your need for them
