  • I don’t mean to contradict what tapernurse says here, but there is no guideline for general practitioners (family doctors) for a 3 monthly evaluation on psychotropic drugs in the Netherlands. It’s possible that someone wrote it in a blog somewhere as a suggestion. But that’s not an official guideline for GP’s. I may be wrong. I would suggest tapernurse send the link to the guideline. Google translate it and post the link here. Furthermore, it’s no more than a rediculous notion to believe GP’s are in any way knowledgeable on the effects of psychotropic drugs, it would be like asking a bike mechanic to diagnose my car. Having said that, asking a psychiatrist to evaluate the need for these drugs every three months, is not going to work either.
