So I've been reading posts here and doing research, and so far my finding is that some people say meds work to treat anxiety, some say they didn't work for them, some say you need meds but also counseling. I can't afford counseling and I need relief from my anxiety quickly, do meds work at all? For anyone? And which from your experience or expertise if you are in the medical field work best for health anxiety that causes the constant feeling of not being able to breathe and constant sighing or taking deep breaths too much? I understand meds have side effects and you gotta be careful not to overdose, but I have researched many of them and have concluded that the potential benefits outweigh the potential side effects. Has anyone ever on here felt relief through meds? Even if it is for a short time? Thank you.
