My Psych wrote me a script for these 2 on Wednesday. I am not a stranger to SSRI's, i have taken several. The Benzo (ativan) i had never dabbled with until this week.
These were given to me for my ongoing, long bouts of social anxiety/phobia. I have been dealing with this my whole life, and i know at this point the rabbit hole only goes deeper with meds...i do not want to become dependent on these things, especially the Ativan.
My diet is totally out of whack--high amounts of caffeine, cola, energy drinks, sugar consumption, fast food, etc.etc...I know this isn't helping me, but working 60-70 hours a week isn't enabling me to live a healthy lifestyle either.
I don't take vitamins or many supplements at all. Someone point me to the right direction please.
