> That's a lousy place to be, and the worst part is the waiting. Your GP is probably right, in that it probably is best to wait for the specialist to choose the next step for meds. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of fast acting options to deal with depression.

Sometimes, you can get on a list to be called if anyone cancels, which might get you in earlier. It's worth calling and asking, at any rate.

Ummm..just to note, here in Canada, I can go to a local walk-in medical clinic, free of charge for every single Canadian, and wait as little as 5-10 minutes minutes or so to see a doctor, and get medication. There are many of these miny clinics all around, well advertised. Wham-bam, done. The only longer waiting times are during 'rush-peak' hours, usually around dinner time, when people get home from work. You *will* still get to see a doctor, though, regardless. Kinda nice. :)
