In brief: GAD
Anxiety is a very tricky thing to live with.
Research has proven effective treatment is combined medication and therapy. Low doses of certain medications is not that helpful for anxiety. Doses of ssri need to be higher to address anxiety and some times combined with other meds.Discuss with you psych to make adjustments and combination treatments.
