It's really down to whether they can see something that your regular doctor can't. With the internet, there is certainly no shortage of knowledge on the various permutations and combinations of medications that people try these days.

However, if the doctor can identify some factor that would make a particular combination useful to you, then it may be worth the money. Also, a regular doc may not be comfortable trying something that a psychiatrist would.

I just started seeing a psychiatrist. Here in Canada, it is 'free' although the wait list is very long. My regular doctor is new, and hence uncomfortable with pretty much everything.

I'm just hoping to try something out of the box. Perhaps an MAOI, dopamine agonist .. who knows.

I'd like another trial of parnate. I took it briefly about 20 years ago. It was working, but the dose was ramped up pretty quickly and I had some kind of hypertensive episode. We got scared and pulled the plug, but it was very effective in the time I had used it. Totally different feel from an SSRI .. deeper and more comprehensive. Not like a giant SSRI bubblebath.
