Our expert says:
Remember that CBT counselling (specifically ) is equally as effective as meds for anxiety problems, and with more lasting benefits.
Though many antidepressants can be helpful in anxiety, Venlor is not one I would favour for that use, and in some people it is definitely no helpful for anxiety symptoms. In a more complex situation such as you describe, if you are being treated by a GP, I would recommend asking to see a specialist psychiatrist, for a more expert assessment and planning of treatment, which your GP may be able to continue from there on.
If this treatment has been prescribed by a pstychiatrist, then you need to call his ofice and ask these questions as he needs to explain his plan to you more carefully, and consider revising it if needed.
