I have been on antidepressants for more than 7-8 years now (dosage per day - duzela 40 MG, milnace 75 MG, Lonazep 0.5 MG, betacap 40) Betacap I started taking recently upon doctors advice as I had been experiencing anxiety related chest pain on left side, persistent pain in the same area. ECG ,TMT, echo etc have been normal always. I have tried very hard to get rid of these medicines (through meditation, yoga, exercise etc) even tried replacing some of them but couldn't get success. Would a CBT helpful in such case, at least in relieving the stress related pain. Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
