My doc has prescribed me Lexapro. I haven't started taking it yet, because I don't want to have to face the fact that I can't do this on my own...
I think I am a pretty severe hypochondriac. I constantly worry about cancer, heart attacks, etc... anything that will take me from my children. I think about death, and I am afraid of it, every day. This is controlling my life... and I do know that I need help. I also have panic attacks and serious anxiety.
Has anyone gotten help from Lexapro for these symptoms? I know there are so many meds out there, I'm just wondering if this is the right one for me. I don't always tell my doc exactly what's going on, because I am ashamed... I have 3 small children, and it's so hard for me to admit to anyone that I don't have it all "together".
Celexa is not as strong as Lexapro. It is in the same family. The Linden Program is designed to help rid of anxiety and panic thru visialization techniques and a change in your thinking process - along those lines. It really is great. You can find it on line.
