E35: Is It Time To Take Anxiety Medication?
Feb 09, 2021 Season 2 Episode 35
Anxiety Gone

Hello Warriors!  Today, I want to talk about medication but not in the sense of whether or not you should take it. I am a strong believer in choosing whatever option is best for you but in order to make the best decision, you need the right information. So, my hopes for this episode is to give you a little bit more perspective on anxiety medications, the do’s, the don’ts, what to expect and the whole sha-bang.

Here's what this episode covers:

  • Two Types of Anxiety Medications (One of which you want to avoid!)
  • What to Expect from Medication
  • The Most Important Thing You Need To Know Before Taking Medication
  • Questions to Ask Yourself Before Starting Medication
    • Is medication the best option for my anxiety problem?
    • Am I willing to put up with unpleasant side effects in return for anxiety relief?
    • What non-drug treatments for anxiety might help?
    • Do I have the time and am I willing to pursue non-drug treatments such as cognitive-behavioral therapy?
    • What self-help strategies might help me get my anxiety under control?
    • If I decide to take anxiety medication, should I pursue other therapy as well?
    • Is anxiety really my problem? Or is something else going on, such as an underlying health condition or pain, for example?
