Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Psychiatric medication have to be prescribed only after a detailed evaluation of the person. This will include a detailed history (from the patient and other informanta) and a proper psychological assessment.
There are certain mental illnesses where medication is necessary. There are certain other conditions where there is a choice for opting either medication or psychotherapy
. So, I would advise you to discuss with your doctor regarding your problem and diagnosis and plan further treatment.
Wish you all the best.
Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar
