Psychology vs. Psychiatry & Pre-Med?

Question by Izzy E: Psychology vs. Psychiatry & Pre-Med?
Please clarify if there are other options besides medical school in order to work clinically in the psychology field. I intended to study pre-med as an undergrad, enter med-school and receive an MD in order to be a psychiatrist. But is there another way I can be a clinical practitioner (e.g., work in the psychology/psychiatry field authorized to administer medicine to patients, rather than just counsel?)

Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by drdr
only an MD can prescribe drugs (and some psychiatric nurse practitioners); and, “just counsel” is pejorative in nature; generally speaking, psychologists may have a greater depth of knowledge of behavior than psychiatrists; drugs are at times the problem and not the answer

Has the Field of Psychiatry Been Infilitrated by Drug Companies?

Question by Ð4MÃN!™ (End the Fed!): Has the field of Psychiatry been infilitrated by drug companies?
Psychiatry, in a pure sense, should not involve drugging people. Psychiatrists should seek to cure their patient’s mental disorders or issues through natural means, and this is VERY possible. There is no need to drug over 30 million Americans every day. Its ridiculous.

I believe the answers is yes, so the real question may be: To what extent?

Psychiatrists are sponsored by drug companies, and are so loose with their prescription pads. They don’t do much asides from prescribing drugs. Its unfortunate, really.

Richard Louv, a scientist who studies a term he coined himself, “natural-deficit disorders” studies how so many of the mental disorders which psychiatrists work can be dealt with through other means, such as exposure to nature. It is absolutely not necessary to drug millions of Americans.
I’m not sure what the percentage is, but a substantially large percentage of the American population takes drugs for depression-related purposes.

What Do You Think About AA?

Question by Sam Rutledge: What do you think about AA?
I’m only 19. But I drink every night just about, and when I drink I do it just to get as drunk as I can befor I pass out. I quit doing coke about two years ago, but I can’t stop drinking. Sometimes I will even mix in a few pills when I drink. I’m trying to streighten out my life, but I’m slipping back into my past. Hanging out with old friends, The same old hang out places. I keep telling myself that I can controll it but now I’m not so sure. I’m afraid of going back to the heavy drugs. I don’t want to go to rehab because I don’t think it would work, I drink because I fell alone. I know it’s a cleche but that’s how I feel. My relationships have been bad, I don’t relate to my family, and my friends who don’t drink or do drugs just yell at me all the time. I dint know I guess I’m just looking for the answers to life and I’m failing at it at the same time.
