Our expert says:
Sounds like some perhaps unnecessary testing, unless your family member was terrified and convinced that she had several serious physical illnesses, and really needed to be convinced otherwise. She should see a good local psychiatrist rather than only a GP, to confirm the diagnosis and to discuss treatment options.
I don't understand your suggestion of Seretide, which is a special form of inhaler used to treat asthma, and it isnt even remotely a "mood stabilizer". And it isn't a mood stabilizer she needs, at all. Sedative drugs used to treat anxiety can become habit forming, and better results are obtained by using some meds also used to treat depression, and also by using specific forms of psychotherapy / counselling such as CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Disorder ).
