Our expert says:
Be cautious about pills, because what most GPs will offer would be valium type benzo sedative tranquillizers which tend to make one drowsy and interfere with one's memory, which may not be very hekpful when one is taking a test. Some counselling sessions, learning to relax deliberately when you need to, and to tone down the anxiety you feel about taking the etst, may be far more effective. NO over the counter tablets would be useful. If you have been taking sedative tranquillizers from your GP, maybe a repeat prescription to see you through the tests would be wise, as if you are withdrawing without those meds, you could be more anxious and jumpy because of that
