Dr's say anxiety & depression linked. Isn't it possible to have anxiety without depression? Is it possible to treat just anxiety? I.e w/o ssri.

In brief: Mental health

Anxiety and depression can co-occur or occur independently.
An SSRI would treat both conditions. You could opt to just treat anxiety - but why? I wouldn't want to suffer from anxiety or depression. Both are quite treatable.
