Default Abilify

I am on the medication Abilify, along with other medications, which control my severe depressive disorder. I was seeing a Psychiatrist about 2 years ago, but then my PCP took over refilling my prescriptions since they didn't change. Most recently I did need a change in meds, but the Psychiatrist would not see me. I was told they were not taking any 'new' patients. They considered me a new patient since I had not been seen in 2 years. Now, I cannot find a Psychiatrist to see me. They all say they do not have openings for new patients. My PCP is reluctant to change any of my meds. Even my therapist cannot get me in with a Psychiatrist.
I feel like I am on my own, and adjusting my meds without any intervention from a doctor. I already increased my Abilify on my own. I am feeling better, although I would like a doctor to follow me.
Does anyone else have problems getting in with a Psychiatrist?

YES! Psychiatrists are super difficult to get, I was on an 8-12 month waiting list, but I finally got a new one. My therapist is the one who got me on the list, but he called one of the psychiatrist's offices and demanded that they put him on with someone who can help him. Eventually they put him on with someone who put me on the list. I think you can get a referral from your doctor too, and that will get you into a doctor faster. Tell your primary doctor that you think you need to see someone regularly. I hope this helps :/
