Customer Question

Hi, I'm feeling very anxious. I'm looking for a job and not having much luck, hence being constantly anxious. I can't sleep, I feel depressed (whch may be situational). I'm just on edge. I don't drink, haven't since 1990 when I was diagnosed with Crohn's disease). I've been in a maters program w a 4.0 gpa but I can't attend until I'm placed in pracrticum. All of this has me agitated and I know it will pass but this daunting feeling is very real
JA: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?
Customer: I'd say 5 months or so. My mom's and sister's health has been bad and I've become responsible to take care of them. I also had all mu upper teeth extracted (phase 1 for dental implants) so that's been a huge adjustment
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I take soma when my neck hurts, levo for thyroid, and patonix (spelling) for acid reflex.

Thank you for your response doctor. I do have a doctor but due to scheduling conflicts, I haven't been able to see her and today has been a particularly bad day.

I see

we can't prescribe medications to clients here online

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have and that was years ago. It did help. I should probably see a therapist to learn coping methods but fitting it in is another problem. Thank you for your time
Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 month ago.

yes, seeing a therapist can help

seeing a doctor for medications like sertraline, paroxetine, fluoxetine, hydroxyzine, propranolol, buspirone, wellbutrin can help decrease your anxiety and depression symptoms.
