      Mines pretty severe at times but I’ve been scared of the meds I could have. I don’t wanna feel like I need them to live…. Even if they do help. Same questions idk when would be time to get them. My therapist dosent push it.

      I am on a couple and I can tell you that I wouldn't be able to function without them is an understatement. I know I need them because I wouldn't leave my bed if I didn't have them.

      I used to hate going out anywhere i had every thought in my head at once. Basically I would have ten ideas of how to deal with every situation. It was the worst and made me so tired. Thats when we tried medication and now I feel so much better. I am on escriptalopram, busperine , and prazison.

      Lexapro here! and I knew I needed to see a dr when i developed panic attacks and stopped eating (severe effects!!). but I should’ve gone when I started to see that other people didn’t feel the same and it wasn’t “normal” amounts of stress.

      For anxiety itself I take Prozac, hydroxyzine and PRN Klonopin. I'm just a very severely anxious person and need something to keep me calmer and help make life generally more manageable. Panic/anxiety attacks too. All the anxiety. I just couldn't keep living how I was. Now I'm on an effective cocktail of meds including these and it all works well.

      I'm on hydroxyzine. I kept having panic attacks anytime I was some people, especially people I didn't know

      I'm on duloxetine for both depression and anxiety. I needed it more for the depression, it helping my anxiety is a bit of a bonus. As far as knowing I need it, it was my psych's suggestion

      I'm on alprazolam (xanax). I knew I needed it when my anxiety became debilitating.
