Does anyone take meds to help with their anxiety?
reply from Sound-Mind.org
Many people take meds to help with their anxiety. In fact, it's more common today than any other time in history - Probably because years ago they did not have the options available. Although meds are not the answer to recovery, they certainly help many people cope with their anxiety/panic while they are in therapy. An example of the different type of meds being used can be found here: Anti-Anxiety Medications
Just like meds, there are alternative methods to overcoming anxiety, such as using therapy (cognitive-behavioral therapy) and even using natural remedies to help with the physical symptoms of anxiety and panic. Many have found that using them both in conjunction with one another has been extremely helpful to long term recovery.
Hope this information was helpful to you! Whatever path you decide to take towards your recovery, be patient with yourself and remember that with baby steps you can learn to get yourself back on track. Hang in there!
