For this episode, we will do a deep dive into the world of anti anxiety medication. Rosie is a psychiatrist who deals with a lot of patients presenting with anxiety symptoms. She helps me to breakdown the different kinds of medication, how anti-depressants work in treating anxiety, what you need to know about the first few weeks on medication and what you need to know about coming off it if you decide to do so. We also chat about the stigma that very much exists around medication – I personally felt that taking medication was a sign of weakness and I still struggle with worrying what people might think about the fact that I’m still on it. Whatever questions you have about anti anxiety medication should be answered here.
