welcome to Healthcare Magic.
From the query it appear that you have agoraphobia
, generalized anxiety disorder
and OCD. Your above mentioned most of the symptoms are related to these disorders. These are chronic problems which requires treatment for several years.
In drug treatment two types of medicine used. For immediate relief of anxiety benzodiazepines group of medicines (like xanax) are used for short term and for long term relief most commonly SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors like lexapro
) are used. SSRI takes around 3-4 weeks to show its effect. Non drug treatment like cognitive behaviour therapy
(form of psychotherapy
) also takes weeks to show its effect.
Your treatment appear to in right direction. In your case poor treatment response is due to poor compliance to treatment. So, be regular in treatment and you will improve significantly.
Wish you all the best.
