Doctor, for the past one year, I have increased worries about my health. If a dog is near me, I need to check my legs for bite marks, a gust of air on my shoulder makes me feel like there was a bat, anything stinging makes me look for rats around me. This has brought my life to an absolute standstill. I fear moving out of my house, not because I fear that some animal might bite me, but because I feel that if it bites me, I'll fail to take the appropriate treatment.
My physician prescribed me Lonazep and D Veniz, once daily for 10 days. I did not take it as I fear the severe side effects these medicines might have. What would you recommend me to do?

The medications are good for anxiety, not bad ones. But based on what you say, I guess medicine which acts on both obsessive thoughts and anxiety will be better. Anyway the choice is yours. No harm taking medicne to cure oneself. All the best.
