Hello Friend, Most psychiatric treatments need combination of medications and psychotherapies. Just be aware that medicines helps only in suppressing the emotions and sometime causes side effects due to various reason. So In parallel, you need start non medicine treatments to manage and control your anxious thoughts and emotion. So better start with simple mindset change exercises, self therapies, exercises routines, few lifestyle changes etc. Consult a physiologist to guide you on the suitable option.
