Finding a good p-doc can either be done by talking to friends and family who might already have one or by just looking at the phone book or a respected hospital if there is one nearby. I'm sure there are other ways, but I was lucky enough to find a good one through my local hospital's mental health department. And you really are doing the right thing by going to see a p-doc since most GP's are not really qualified to treat anything too out of the ordinary when it comes to depression and anxiety. And going to the p-doc wasn't too bad for me beyond the first visit. The first visit is mostly getting background on your diagnosis and then they mostly focus on getting the symptoms of your depression under control with different meds. There wasn't much therapy talk with my p-doc. She was very straight and to the point on how I was feeling and what we could try from a med standpoint to help, which I liked. Many appointments were 20 minutes or less for me.

I'm lucky enough to have klonopin (4 mg per day if needed) to deal with the anxiety to some degree, but the depression and associated pessimism in my thoughts is coming back. Good luck! Let's hope someone can shed some light on this or at least share their experiences. I am starting to think I'll have to go back on the meds despite the side effects, but maybe at the lowest effective dose this time.
