Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Hormonal imbalance frequently lead to depression and anxiety. In such cases treatment of cause become more important rather than treating only anxiety symptoms. That is why you are responding to treatment.

In pheochromocytoma BP used to remain very high. Possibility that the patients has pheochromocytoma can be rule out by measuring 5-HIAA excretion in urine.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
