I theorize that they are prescribed and then the patient is not helped to work through their issues. The drug is supposed to take care of it. So they don’t have to confront their problems, work out coping skills, change any attitude, remove themselves from any situations.

They are also used too often in cases where the primary care doctor did not do an extensive medical history work up and check for underlying physical ailments of which anxiety and depression are secondary symptoms. Vestibular Disorders and sensory processing related disorders are one of the biggest in that respect.

I'm diagnosed as having General Anxiety Disorder. That diagnosesd came 18 years ago. The protocol treatment is usually antidepressants. But it took several years before I linked my G.A.D. to my life long Inner Ear and sensory related ailments. Antidepressants almost drove me off the deep end and did do so to my wife who is a quadriplegic.

We can take Xanax correction we must take Xanax I use it to help tone down my sensory system to control seizure activity from sensory induced stimulation. Doctors wanted to hand me antidepressants like candy but panicked over a .5mg {half a mg} pill of Xanax four times a day.

In many cases seeing what is called a Therapist helps. They are much more smarter than a typical Shrink. The Shrink says here take these and see you in three months.

I've had PTSD as has my wife I saw one nearly 5 years. It was a learning experience for me and him. I taught him about Vestibular Disorder induced Panic Disorder and he helped me with the PTSD. Both had hit me at the same time. The PTSD went away. The other I'll have for life. No cures as it is neurological damage.
