Looking to see someone for depression. I've never seen someone for mental health before. Should I be looking for a psychiatrist or therapist?

    Psychiatrist can prescribe medication as well as try talk therapy. Therapist will only listen to you and uses talk therapy. Depending on how sever you think your situation is, you may pick one or the other. Hope you feel better soon.

    Therapist or counselor. Psychiatrists only prescribe meds

    I don't think they can help. You need to hit up Vegas and the ranches there like Lamar Odom. Got his life and wife back together within a week and now a recovered and rejuvenated new man.

      Wrong. I’ve seen depression medication work miracle in a close friend. I was desperate to help but no amount of talking or consoling seemed to work. That said my friend had gone through a rough patch (career wise and a tough breakup), after taking meds for a while got life back on tracks and went off meds.

      How were the side effects?
      Lamar's side effects were at least good.

      No side effect from what I can tell. Personal life and career both back on track, 5 years down the road, and my friend strongly recommends it and says people who are suffering should try it sooner instead of suffering in silence. I haven’t been following Lamar’s story - wasn’t he the one who was in a coma for a while?

      Maybe but that was drugs. But w/o getting to that level, his ex might now have come so quick to rescue him and build their life back together. Sometimes you need go the opposite way to sling the right way, like how NASA does it.

      You don't see side effects easily from the outside. But he could be having headaches or blowing up his toilet every other day. The drug co's aren't forced to warn ppl for nothin'.

      Are you a bot or high? I didn’t get a word of what you said. Either way, good tonight!

      Why did you not get a word? Do you need a magnifying glass? Good tonight too, I guess.
