Will the physician prescribe medications for anxiety and sleeping aid?
I received some shocking news about an abnormal pap smear today and I cannot seem to stop crying for long before I start again. I have known major depression disorder and anxiety problems and see a psychiatrist. I was a little concerned that my hands were beginning to feel numb after sobbing a lot. I know my reaction is intense.. but my existing emotional state plus this potentially bad news is wrecking havoc on me. I am concerned that I will not be able to sleep at night from worry... When I go to my physician, would it be reasonable to expect she would grant me some sort of sleeping or anxiety aid?
In depression and anxiety, patient threshold to handle stressful condition decrease due to which all such symptoms occur. In ur case, if u r not getting sound sleep then there is nothing harm in taking sleeping pills and antidepressant. U can expect same thing from ur physician or psychiatrist, but the main good thing is, these drugs would help u to handle the pressure.
