Why on earth choose to get stressed out about this ? Shrinks are nice people, and skilled at putting you at your ease. He will ask you questions and listen to you carefully, to assess the nature of your problems, and then discuss treatment alternatives, presumably including medications and counselling, especially of the CBT format. ADs, IF needed, can be helpful and don't necessarily have heavy side-effects, especialyl not after the first couple of weeks. Your degree of expectatiopn of awful side-effects could be a major cause of that problem. CBT can HELP you to learn to have the discipline you need. You seem so determined to fail at treatment ! Why would you insist on choosing not to do what CBT or other therapy recommended ?
