Would it be talking with your doctor, if you're just an anxious person, and want to try medicine?

In brief: Anxiety

If you are anxious the doctor would likely want to obtain more history.
He or she might order a thyroid lab test or other tests to insure that your symptoms are not due to an underlying medical problem. The doctor would determine if medications were appropriate. Take care.

In brief: Sure

Give him/her a call and find out.
Very anxious people might benefit from medication. Most of us do not, but the doctor can evaluate whether the anxiety is interfering with your life and the best way to treat it, with medication or with talking therapy.
