Anxiety Disorder medications

anxiety medication

A number of clients who I see are already on some kind of psychiatric drug and most of these don't seem to interere with successful therapy. There are a number of drugs that people are commonly prescribed for social anxiety and this page is for reference only. Quite commonly, people with psychosomatic problems (problems which have no medical/ physiological explanation) will end up on drugs of one form or another. Common sense tells us that this is very much like 'papering over the cracks'. The real cause of the problem is not being dealt with in any way - all that is happening is that the symptom is generally being made less harsh.
