If you need govt licensed drugs, you can pay for a $200 initial visit, where the shrink will get your history and your symptoms and also "scope you out". This visit will take an hour, probably 40 minutes of which you'll have to talk to the MD.

Thereafter, every few months you'll need a "med management" visit, 15 minutes, to make sure you don't have side effects.

If you want talk-talk, go see a therapist (ie, psychology "doctorate") in addition. Some probs
are purely chem.
