I've toughed it out for the past three years managing myself with my disorder. I've tried talk therapy with a psychologist but unfortunately it didn't work and he wasn't that great, and it just got to expensive and is something i can't afford. I'm not saying talk therapy is ineffective but you need to find the best fit and afford it obviously.
Now on to my question. I've heard the horror stories about taking medication for anxiety. I've read countless posts on here from those seeking help and assurance about side effects or withdrawal issues. I understand medication works different for each person. But the negative aspect seems to out weight the positive.
Can meds work or are they really that bad?
