Well, silly, I didn't say to hide psychopharmacological knowledge, but you can't just call doctors on the phone and say, for example, "will you prescribe Adderall w/a MAOI?".
It might have a better outcome if you call and ask "how much experience do you have with MAOIs, including augmentation for comorbid conditions" or even something like "I'm currently being treated for SA with an MAOI, but not for my ADD, and I'm looking for someone experienced in ______ because inadequate treatment for ADD is adversely affecting my life"

If you can get a positive response to that, then go into more detail during initial appt. about specific stimulants. :))

Your medical records - you know that big file - all those notes they write about you - your self reported symptoms and history, all the details written about your course of treatment, history of medications prescribed while w/that doctor, etc. Ask for a *complete* copy next time you go to your PDoc.
