PCPs for psychotropic medication

Why do you think most individuals would instead go to their PCPs for psychotropic medication when this individual has not been specifically trained to prescribe these medications like a psychiatrist has been trained?

The reasons people gave for discontinuing their meds included fear of health risks and side effects of long-term use. I am also aware that often psychiatrists offer drugs too quickly, and without also strongly advising the patient concurrently do therapy to help deal with emotional issues.

What is a common misconception/assumption made about psychotropic medication (state at least one)?
