Re: Tough time with meds.....any other suggestions?
In my opinion, un covering the source of your anxiety is the most important thing you can do. If it isnt obvious...such as relationship or financial or work, then a therapist would be helpful to assist you. I did NOT find meds to be helpful at all. I was involved in both a failing business and messy divorce and it was obvious to me that those needed to be resolved AND I needed a breather before I could recover. A good therapist can help, but can't waive a magic wand and will away your stressors. Learning to deal with them is valuable but sometimes they can overwhelm any of us and we just need a timeout...
I realize everyone's chemistry varies, but meds seemed to contribute to my anxiety. I lived on Xanax for a while and seem ok after a few months of respite......Hope that helps
