  • Should I take medications for anxiety?

    If you are considering a psychotropic medication for anxiety, I would meet with a medical professional (e.g., your PCP or a psychiatrist) in order to determine if you are a candidate for medication. I am a Psychologist and I evaluate and treat many patients with anxiety through talk therapy, which is highly effective for many people. If you are currently in therapy, I recommend talking with your therapist about pros and cons of medication and whether or not you are a candidate for medication. READ MORE
