I have a friend who has severe agoraphobia. Shes barely left the house in the last year and has got to the point were she can't leave at all. Shes afraid to take medication but I convinced her to give it a try at a very low dose but she said she had a bad reaction to it. I can't help but feel the bad reaction she had was psychological as she had built up this fear around taking meds. Either way shes reluctant to take any meds now and the over the phone counselling hasn't helped either. She's crying so much she's hyperventilating and vomiting. I live far away from her and really just don't know what to do to help her. If she won't take medication and counselling isn't helping are there any other things I could suggest she try?
