How To Reduce Anxiety?

I had been getting a lot of Anxiety since a couple of years to the extent I, get up with Palilations when I get up in the morning even on a holiday... I have been diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder and prescribed paxidep cr 25.
Reading over the internet , I feel I am not that worried through out the day as, the articles on the internet mention.... is it possible that the doctor has given an incorrect medicine...
When diagnosed with HperThyroidism last year, I was also prescribed Atenolol (for reducing my heart rate)and it really calmed me down at that time ... I feel I may rather need Atenolol instead of paxidep cr 25.... Need you suggestion on how to deal with the situation... Would really appreciate..help

Hi
Thanks for using healthcare magic

Anxiety symptoms in your case could be due to hyperthyroidism. In that case, you have to consult a endocrinologist or physician to control your thyroid profile. Atenolol is antihypertensive and that would help to control blood pressure. In your case, treatment depends upon the cause. If anxiety is due to thyroid, then there is no need to take antidepressant. Rest, you can consult your doctor. In case, you need further help, you can ask.

Thanks
