Change tablets or not?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone, need some advice, I have been fine for about 8 months now and all a sudden my anxiety has come back so quick I have been stressed alot latley. I was just wondering if it is worth going to the doctors for a increase in tablets or just waiting a bit. Cause going up on tablets sometimes makes you worse. Just don't want my anxiety to increase and it to start affecting my life again. Thanks sean

    Meds are prescribed by your GP tailored to your individual needs. Also your medical history would have been taken into consideration by your doctor

    This is something you need to discuss with the GP so that you can make an informed decision

    Talk to your GP Sean make a list of your concerns and worries and He will decide if you need CBT or an increase in your medications.

    If you have an increase in the medication you are on now you may have a few extra contrindications that will hopefully disapate after a couple of weeks.

    Treat your concern before it may get worse

    I usually check in with my doc if my anxiety stays up for a week or more. There is no harm in going in right away, though! If nothing else, you can find out what your options are, how likely those options are to help, etc. Information is power when you have anxiety!!

    It is worth calling your doc, and finding out what they think. Don't let you anxiety get out of control,as we know it does
