Can I realistically focus on CBT therapy instead of meds?CBT is one of the most common, if not the most common, form of therapy for health anxiety and other anxiety disorders. There's a reason it's one of the most common: it works. It's full of techniques that make it effective in coping with anxiety and counteracting the negative behaviors and thought patterns.
YESSSSSSS!!! It can be better than taking meds. I have been seeing a therapist for a few, well more than a few years. Has helped me so much. The key is finding the right therapist for you. I saw several before I found one that was a good fit for me.I’ve decided to try CBT based therapy for the first time. I’ve been seeing a therapist but she doesn’t do CBT but recommended I see a therapist who does. Anybody have experience with CBT therapist? Doesn’t it work?
It could be minor side effects from not taking Paxil. How long have you been taking it? Are you trying to wean off?Haven’t taken the Paxil since Friday night yet today my lightheaded feeling is worse than yesterday. I’m starting to worry something health wise is seriously wrong
