I want something that I can take as needed, short term, to assists in Therapy.
Bottom line I don't want an SSRI, I'm not depressed,
So let's say I have been put on with an SSRI, can I request and/or safely cycle both an SSRI and a "as-needed" medication if the case may be she wants to peddle Zoloft or something?
Not to sound repetitious, but is it common for a psychiatrist to prescribe Benzos or medicines of such to edge start up symptoms?
It seems that everyone I've read about who has started up an SSRI were experiencing some serious repercussions (diarrhea, upset stomach, fatigue)
Due to the severity of my case I don't see my symptoms spiking anywhere out of the norm, but do SSRIs initially potentiate the symptoms of anxiety?
It's weird, they did not require a pre-evaluation from a General Practioner.
if you have any pointers of opinion, feel free to let me know.
