After 2 months of obsessing about a worst case scenario about my health i developed severe anxiety. Tests have come back clear however im still anxious and now attending CBT with my psychologist she asked if I'm taking medication. My doctor said to wait and see after a few counseling sessions but I feel like it's not really working? Maybe I'm looking for a quick fix please help it's not the physical symptoms that worries me it's the obsessive worry about how I'm feeling . Will lexapro help with this?
Yes, it is quit possible the Lexapro will help your obsessive thoughts. CBT will help as well. Gonna have to give it time though. It can take months of medication and therapy to retrain the mind, but it is entirely possible. Be patient and if you find the CBT is not enough a trial of an antidepressant such as Lexapro might well be the answer.
