The ''yes'' is the description of the individual's subjective response of an overwhelming, acute sense of anxiety. The precipitant-vs. Cause-is social or more to the cause, interpersonal. Tho the''quick tx.'' is several week(s) of the ssri now available in generic form. Try paroxetine first. Do explain the noisome side effects. Ptht. Rel. Imp. If a switch to 2nd ssri, look to dev. Factor.
