Hello Lybrate user Anxiety disorder and depression requires combination therapy i.e. Medecines along with psychotherapy sessions. It might take a few months and varies from person to person depending upon the severity and coping strategies used by the person. Regular psychotherapy sessions would be helpful. Try consulting a clinical psychologist for the same. You can also reach out to me through the Lybrate app. Try following exercise routine, spend time with family and friends, share your thoughts and feelings with someone close and practice deep breathing exercises.
