This is Dr. David

do you mean effexor? and Lexapro?

other medications to try are wellbutrin and zoloft and paxil which can help decrease anxiety over time.

long acting benzos such as valium or klonopin from your doctor can help decrease anxiety.

these are prescription medications your doctor have to prescribe for you.

doctors here online at JA can't prescribe medications to clients we can't see and can't keep medical records on

some insurance companies allow for telemedicine benefits to patients

such as

but it depends on your insurance plan

you can call up your health insurance company to see if they have a telemedicine benefit where you can see a doctor online via computer.
