Patient discussion about Doctor of Medicine

Q. I don’t know why doctor stopped the medicine and referred a psychiatrist. My sister is bipolar manic depression and we are taking her for her psychotherapy sessions from past 1 month. We have not found any change as of now. I don’t know why doctor stopped the medicine and referred a psychiatrist. We have to meet our doctor again after 2 months, but I wanted to know before meeting him that would this be of any help without any medicines.

A. Perhaps the GP stopped medications and referred your sister to a psychiatrist so that the psychiatrist can give her new medications. Sometimes it is better for a psychiatrist to percsribe medications because they know more about the illness and the effective treatments. If the medications your GP perscribed were not working perhaps he/she thought it better to hand the case over to a psychiatrist. Try to be patient through this process I know it is frusterating. Be there for your sister and be patient with her and her symptoms, in time it will get better. Keep faith.
