Will Anxiety Medication Affect My Ability To Function?

Question: Will anxiety medication affect my ability to function?

Answer: Really, the medication should not interfere with your ability to function if you're receiving the proper dose of the proper medication and you have a dialogue with the prescribing physician so that they really know how you're doing. You want to be balanced at that apex point, so that your symptoms are being adequately handled, and, at the same time, you are functioning at a high level. And just also keeping in mind, even as medication may be used, cognitive therapy, even in research studies, has been shown to be extremely effective in managing anxiety long-term and even more effectively, at times, than even combination of medication and therapy, interestingly.
