When is it worth taking something else?


[Re...]

Recommended Posts

My anxiety and depression are almost getting to a point where I can no longer “fake it” and I’m worried very much about being a normal functioning member of society.

 

At what point is it worth risking to take an antidepressant or anti anxiety medication?

 

I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am and scared that if this keeps getting worse I won’t be able to do anything.

I did therapy throughout my recovery to help with emotional stress.  I found it very helpful.  Is that something you're already doing?

According to Dr. Heather Ashton described in her Ashton Manual, the only time one should consider adding antidepressant during benzodiazepin withdrawal when the patient experiences depression. So I would think it is reasonable to consider antidepressant and discuss it with your doctor.
