Today I went to a psychologist and told him about my social anxiety case and how it is affecting my work.
He told me that i have mild anxiety.
He suggested 4 options: anti depressant, xanax low dose, beta blocker, and CBT.
He mentioned that cbt is for the long run and takes time. He added that with anti depressant i cannot withdraw. He suggested xanax 0.25 since it works in the brain and told me to take it only in case of certain events (speech, meetings).
He suggested that i try it in a day i do not work in order to see how would i feel.
Has anyone gone through the same experience?
What is the side effect of it?
