What about Medications for Anxiety?

Anxiety patients are regularly prescribed medications, but medications can be complex solutions. They don’t teach new and healthier patterns and often promote a lack of self-awareness. You don’t learn to quiet your mind or how to be calm. Even with medications, anxiety frequently still persists with reduced symptoms and side effects. If the medication stops working or side effects occur, physicians often switch patients’ medication. This can cause agitation and confusion while getting used to the new drug which may or may not work well.

Deciding to stop taking medications altogether can also be problematic because the anxiety is likely still there or has gotten worse. A return of symptoms doesn’t prove you need more medication or a different one. It may indicate that your brain has become used to having medications and developed a dependency. Certain anti-anxiety medications are addictive, and with long-term use are difficult to get off.

As an alternative to medications, neurofeedback can often help people gently reduce or eliminate drugs as their brains learn to become and remain calmer and more stable. Many clients report that issues bother them less, their mind is quieter, they recover from stressful events faster and they need less medication
