Yes benzodiazepine with psychotherapy
Thanks for writing to us. I can understand your concern.
Sexual side effects are common with Escitalopram. If your anxiety problem is not severe, you can go with only benzodiazepine. In that case I recommend stopping Escitalopram gradually by tapering to half dose if you are taking already.
Benzodiazepine should be taken under medical supervision to prevent dependence and abuse.
With benzodiazepine I also suggest going for psychotherapy. In psychotherapy I specifically recommend CBT- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. This will reduce your need of benzodiazepine and you can stop it easily.
You can ask your doctor for this approach.
Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
