For those who have been diagnosed with GAD, has therapy with a psychiatrist helped? Which prescriptions should one stay away from? Are any of you on medical marijuana? I am trying to determine options.

I've only ever had one psychiatrist, and they were basically used solely a prescriber. The actual therapy was with a psychologist. It was free through the school I was attending, so I took what I could get. That being said, it was the best med regimen I'd experienced up to that point. Fast forward to today - I have had multiple therapists, but I just go to my PCP for meds. This is cheaper by far, plus the med regimen I'm on now has literally changed my life - all for the better. Way better than what the psychiatrist gave me. I feel normal again. Things I've tried and didn't like: Celexa, Prozac, Zoloft, Remeron, Xanax. Things that helped: Wellbutrin (but did give me insomnia and heart flutters), Effexor, and Klonopin.

I was diagnosed with gad and depression by a psychiatrist. He prescribed lexapro which helped with gad but it was a little too extreme and I lost most of my emotions. I got off it. I tried medical marijuana but it made my anxiety worse over time when I was sober. Maybe there’s a way to microdose but I was never told how to.

I’m on Lexapro too which helps my depression but I also feel I’ve lost my other emotions too. However my depression was too debilitating so I am choosing to stay on it for now.

Orgasms and exercise are the best natural cures.

i have mmj + risperidone

Hi! I have two offers and I’m not sure what to do. One is with a small firm that serves as outside counsel to medical practices (leasing, employment issues and acquisitions are primary work load) and the other is in-house for a pharmaceutical company (managing outside counsel, vendor contracts, privacy). The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!
