Brief Answer:
Yes the medication helps

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for using health care magic.

I read your query and understand your concerns.
I like to inform you that paxil works well in anxiety and obsessional thoughts. As it takes time to act zanax will assist you during initial few weeks of treatment. In my view your doctor is right for deciding in favour of medication.

I understand your curiosity to heal naturally but natural treatments help during early stages or when disease severity is very mild. When things go out of control medications are the main stay of treatment.

In my view it will be appropriate if you can participate in meditation and yoga as these ancient methods help a lot and assist the medications in recovery process.

I hope this helps you.
If you have more questions feel free to write back to me.
Thanks and regards.
