I am a recent joiner of university and having previously suffered from anxiety (that I thought I had mostly got out of the way, or at least learned to handle) I have found myself struggling to make it into lectures based on the lack of escape and other general things that come along with suffering from Anxiety. I have previously been treated with CBT, which helped and Escitalopram, which didnt. I went to the mental health support team today and sorted out some things which should help me feel more comfortable. I was then given a GP's appointment where the Doctor was very very quick to prescribe me drugs. I was given a beta blocker of 10mg, begins with a P. Also was given a drug I wasn't aware of which is Sertraline, with a starting dosage of 100mg a day for a month with a 2 week checkup. Now I was reading the small print in the box and it says that most people with Anxiety start on 25mg and work up to 50mg which gave me a bit of a worry. Any Help from anyone in similar circumstances. I am 19yoa.
Also would like to know about the effects of alcohol on both of these drugs, I am a university student and thus drink like one.
