Ongoing counseling: It is certainly understandable why you would be fearful of cancer recurrence. You list behavior therapy as an intervention, but you may benefit from more counseling. Most cancer treatment centers have resources that provide counseling and support groups for cancer survivors. Discuss other medication options with your doctor as you felt Lexapro (escitalopram) was of no benefit. Hope this helps. All the best.
