I was on medication about a year before I started my CBT and it was helpful in managing my anxiety but it was nothing compared to the help I received in therapy. If you feel like your anxiety is manageable enough than I would consider going without meds. But just know that therapy is very anxiety enduring in the beginning. Good luck!
Same! Exact same! I have been taking Celexa since I stopped drinking five years ago. Helped a lot with general anxiety but not much for OCD thoughts. The ERP here has been incredibly helpful. Been doing it about six months and right now I am symptom free! Incredible
@Erik Thanks for the reply!!
I appreciate the reply mate! Getting set up in therapy now. Hopefully I’ll have an appt soon.
