Being on meds: doesn't automatically mean that your symptoms will be well controlled. Have your medications been optimized? Are you using non-pharmacologic techniques as well? There are a # of ways to address anxiety: Cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior modification, individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, , Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Acupuncture, Acupressure, Homeopathy, meditation, Yoga & exercise program.
