hypochondria/health anxiety & medicine

hey everyone... I am diagnosed with hypochondria/health anxiety and prescribed Xaxax for panic attacks but I haven't taken it because I haven't had any major anxiety attacks, just obsessing over small symptoms everyday. Does anyone have hypochondria and take a daily dose of something. My doctor was going to prescribe me a daily dose of Zoloft or something, but I'm still iffy about taking a daily thing since I'm only 18. I'm sure it works great with depression and anxiety but what about hypochondria?? How about hypnotherapy? Really I'm just trying to find a way to get rid of this disorder, because I really don't think counseling is working. Any advice would help!

Re: hypochondria/health anxiety & medicine

I dont take medication any longer..but still have hypochondria comes and goes...some days I just focus on symptoms..but dont label them...sometimes i label my symptoms in I link them to disease of some kind or another..and thats when I think if this doesnt pass I will have to take medication...anxiety meds usually work on hypochondria too..its all part of the thinking/brain system.good luck
