Medication For Anxiety Only?

Medication For Anxiety Only?

I’ve struggled for years with Anxiety and Depression. I’ve been on and off antidepressants for years, not liking the side effects...but I wonder if anyone here forgoes the antidepressant and only takes something for their anxiety? If so, what is it?

@A MyDepressionTeam Member thanks for your input. My Dr isn’t the most understanding and doubt they’ll put me on anything other than another anti depressant. Was hoping people here were prescribed something helpful for the long journey ahead..maybe that’s just not a thing?

Sorry u r going through this. Adavan helped me when I got anxious, really did , yet my doctor and psychiatrist took me off them because of their affect down the road. So now I m always anxious . To check with down the road, I need those meds today.
Clonazepam also worked but same result.
Hope u have an understanding doctor.
