Will I Have To Take Antidepressant Medication Every Day For It To Be Effective For My Anxiety Disorder?
Dr. Brian Brennan answers the question: 'Daily Antidepressant Use For Anxiety?'
— -- Question: Will I have to take antidepressant medication every day for it to be effective for my anxiety disorder?
Answer: Yes, and antidepressant medications are medications that need to be taken on an everyday basis for them to really be effective in the treatment of anxiety. This is mainly because these are medications that take at least a few weeks, if not four to six weeks, to really have their full clinical effect. So to use them on an as needed basis really is not using them in a way to get the most effectiveness out of them.
