Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
What if anything is making you hesitant to ask for the anti anxiety medication?
Are you concerned about it being addictive or if it would impede your work?
You've listed that you're receiving counseling and are taking Zoloft.
A person can take the ativan w/ the zoloft because these are different class medications
The medication works on the GABA receptors in the brain.
There is a natural GABA supplement as well that can be obtained w/o prescription
The anxiety may also be something that could be addressed w/ your therapist or a hypnotherapist (if you decide to try other options than the medication Ativan)
Prayer/meditation have also shown effective in slowing down one's brain waves to a more relaxe state of Alpha or Theta. There are some audio recordings that can be used as well at home
