I was once again prescribed escitalopram and Xanax .The first time I was given these medicines I felt the need to bring it with me but I would never take it. I do know I have anxiety but I'm scared to take the medicines. I'm afraid to not feel like myself. I don't understand why I have to take a medication to make me feel better. I guess to be honest with myself I just have so many fears and don't know what to do which is a big part of my anxiety .Right now I'm crying because I picked up my medicines from the pharmacy and I feel bad that I want to take one.
Don’t feel bad about taking a prescribed med. The escitalopram is like Prozac. It has to build up in your system to work properly and the results sort of build. I’ve been on many different mood type meds and prefer Prozac to all others. It’s a good place to start. Xanax helps me feel calm. I take it before bed and it helps slow down the racing thoughts and decompress.
