Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello I am sorry my computer froze. You said your mother is seeing a GP, yet she is uffering from depression and sever anxiety. I would suggest that you have her seen by a psychiatrist who is the mosyt adept with psychotopic drugs. Dhe should not have to tough it out unless rhere is some overrinding reason. Psychiatrist often use benzodiapines (antianxiety pills) for a short time to cover the anxiety caused by the antidepressant, or consider another antidepressant with less side effects.

Hello, the antidepressant meds also have an anti anxiety effect so taht might be the reason that they are being prescribed. Hashimoto's dideade is a thyroid disorder and the medication for anxiety might be adding to her anxiety. I still believe if she has anxiety due to a medical disease or another reason, the proper person to prescribe because he/she is more familiar is a psychiatrist. Many physician prescribe psych meds, but usually after the regimen is established by a psychiatrist who specializes silely is psyc meds not all available meds. Is her Hashimoto's disease being treated by an encocrinologist, it usually is.
