Okay, so I have been taking Saint John's Wort for around 7 weeks now. I went to go see the doctor 4 weeks ago for my anxiety, and she prescribed me buspirone (7.5mg 2x a day). I felt a difference in how I was feeling a couple weeks ago. I don't feel like my anxiety is gone though... but I do feel happier. My social anxiety is still through the roof, and all the physical symptoms of my anxiety are still occurring. So I'm just not really if the prescription is doing anything? Or if it's the SJW that's making me feel happier? My overall wellbeing has increased, but my anxieties are still prevalent. I don't know which is working more, or if one of them is making me feel this way and the other has no effect at all? I just want someone else's perspective on all of this.
I feel content, relaxed, but still on edge, and I still have a lot of panic. I have minor depression, but I think that's a result of my severe anxiety. I went to see the doctor again yesterday. I explained to her all of this in great detail, and she prescribed me Zoloft? Which in fact she said was safe to take with Saint John's wort and Buspirone?! I'm not comfortable taking SSRI's, so that's out of the question. Should I call her and tell her this? She's not the best doctor but is all I can afford. I thought she would up the dose of the Buspirone or at least prescribe me a short acting anxiety medication, however she has been so pushy with this Zoloft. Are there any other non-SSRI medications that could benefit me? Because I'm not quite sure if what I'm already taking is working or not since I'm taking two different things.
