Hi doctor,

I work in the IT field. For three years, I have been dealing with a lot of stress. I have started to lose hair, have dark circles under my eyes, started gaining weight, and so on. When I complain about my anxiety, people instantly advise me to try yoga, practice breathing methods and meditate, but nothing has worked for me. I am convinced that only medications can relieve my tension. Could you please assist me? I need stress-relieving medication.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

Nonpharmacological and pharmacological therapy should be used together. If nonpharmacological therapies such as yoga, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques do not help, you may begin using Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medications such as Sertraline or Escitalopram. They have antianxiety and antidepressant properties.
