I am the same way. I do have meds for my anxiety but I hate not being in control.

It bothers me soooo much lol. They put me on Celexa for anxiety last month but it made it worse.

I am waiting also. Just heard back this morning from insurance and after they had the paperwork for a week and it was the last day they had to get in touch with me they tell me they need information from my family doctor. So now I get to wait longer

Well maybe that's a good sign! Maybe they dont need anything else.

Lexapro would have been a better choice. Celexa does nothing for anxiety. Sorry, been a psych nurse almost 20 years.

Oh I'm glad you said something because, dont get me wrong I love my PCP, but he acts like he has no idea what will work. I was on Klonopin for a while but my panic attacks got so bad they weren't helping anymore. He has been chasing his tail to find something that works but it's mainly been antidepressants that make it worse. I had Adivan(spelling?) A few years ago and it was as needed and really helped. A months supply lasted me 3 months a lot of the time but that was a different dr lol

Ativan is a fast acting benzo. Klonopin is a long acting benzo. I take Klonopin and it helps take the edge off. Lexapro is an antidepressant but also used for anxiety. PCPs aren’t well versed on psych meds and in their defense, there are so many to choose from. I hope you’re able to find something that works for you. Hugs. I know how difficult it is to struggle with anxiety. It can be debilitating.

Well the insurance company wanted a letter from my doctor supporting the surgery. My family doctor was right on it and I got the approval today. May 9th is the day.
