Hi, was just wondering what experiences members in the UK have had with doctors, meds ect. Has anyone had any contact with the department of Dp in london?

Hi Alan

Most doctors I have spoken to don't have a clue. I've given up trying to explain, just say 'yeah I'm panicky' get my prescription and go. It was clear they weren't going to help me so I am helping myself. Or you need to find someone who is able to give you the time and therapy you need to help your individual problems, not necessarily a dp expert, but someone who understands psychological issues. Most gp's do not. In my experience anway.

As for the DP unit, I contacted them and they cannot answer direct questions, but they can send you a leaflet about what they do and a questionnaire which they use for their research. You need to be referred to the unit through a psychiatrist.

Hope this is of some help!
