It DEFINITELY does. Sometimes my anxiety is so bad that when my boyfriend tries to get me in the mood I can't even think about it, too busy focusing on whatever I am stressing about. If you do decide to use the medicine the first week or two will not be too pleasant, because things always get worse before they get better. But afterwards, if it's the right medicine for you, it will make you feel 10x better! I have medicine that I should be taking but stopped because I was self-medicating with alcohol, became an alcoholic, and did not want to mix the two. But now that I've stopped drinking I am going to start taking them again.
