drummerboy said:I think it depends on how severe the problem is. I suffered from pretty bad panic attacks, and I don't think my PCP was up to it. Sometimes you need the specialist. But if it's mild, then yeah, a pcp should be able to handle prescriptions for the benzo of their choice.

I'm also looking for a psychiatrist/psychologist for a family member going through anxiety. But virtually every post here talks about drugs. Is that normal? Are there any local psychiatrists who try to treat problems without prescribing drugs?
