myinevit-able-end: Did you ever take medication for your SA is so which? And did u feel it helped. Medication has been the only thing that has helped me. Been in therapy for 2 years. I feel like my da is genetic ya no and cnr just be helped with that cbt stuff but hey
I take medication for my depression and my anxiety together. I’m currently on Fluoxetine (about a year?) and Quetiapine (half a year?) which have both given me pretty good results. That being said, just because it works for me, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you, so please keep that in mind, and don’t take any medication without consulting your therapist or whoever would be next in line for that of thing.
Medication isn’t required to overcome social anxiety, it can be overcome WITHOUT medication, since as I try to stress, overcoming SA includes a shoot load of facing your fears and getting out and doing it.
For some people, medication is used to calm them in the moment, some it’s a stabilizer, some it’s this and that and whatever else.
Whatever works, I guess. Best of luck, yo!
