what country

Hi, I have Idea to fly away to some country( was thinking india) and try out all the meds I need to so that I can function again, do like 30 sessions once a week with cheep psychiatrists. The alternative is to quit my job, stay in my country with ridiculous living expenses and pay for psychiatrists and **** all along avoiding any social interaction with my friends and family.
So I was thinking some cheap country where the psychiatrists are cheap and I can figure this out over a lot of sessions with them.
Does this sound like a good idea?
If so what country would you recommend?

Re: what country

It sounds good in theory but in practice, how are you going to move to a new country? Have you got a passport? Enough money to live on in a new country? Somewhere to move into in the new country so you have a roof over our head?

A lot of people think the UK is good but in practice mental healthcare here is pretty crap.

I live in Israel. To the best of my knowledge and from my personal experience I have to say that the best psychiatrists in the world are in the united states, but they aren't cheap. personally I would pay 300$ a session and meds aren't cheap as well. I am not going to move, just buy a plane ticket and visit a country for a few months.

Re: what country

You seem to be contradicting yourself. Either you are looking for a cheap way of getting meds (your first post) or you want to pay whatever (your last post).

In pretty much any country you are looking at private healthcare, which is indeed unlikely to be cheap. Especially not factoring in the costs of a long-term stay in another country.

Are there no psychiatrists in Israel that are familiar with adult ADD?
