Re: I have an anxiety problem and dont know how to deal with it
You wont feel drugged up. What you feel now is anxiety, and that's not right. What you want is something to bring you back to feeling like yourself, and medication will help with that. It may take you months, or even years, on a medication before you return to normal, but it wont be forever. Your options are to tough it out and hope it subsides, which, by the sounds of it, doesn't seem likely, or seek help.
You shouldn't be embarrassed to talk to your doctor about anything. That makes them pretty useless. If you can, you can opt to find a psychiatrist without consulting your doctor first. You can tell them about your blood pressure and current medication, and that you're feeling anxious and unsure if the problem is being adequately addressed by the medication.
