Why you should give medication a fair chance
Antidepressants get a bad rep. They cause unpleasant side effects and do not provide rules straight away. However, there is a good reason to not give up on them too soon.
Medicating anxiety is a long progress. Some conditions have a set medication that works 100% of the time. Not so with mental health. Different people respond differently to each medication. Then there is dose to factor in. You might have to try several medications, at several doses, until you find the correct one for you.
