It has been on and off for a few months, there is a lot of big decisions and things going on in my life right now and I am not doing good at all. I take niacinamide 6g daily along w/ b-complex and vitamin c, and fish oil. I seemed to help in the past but not helping right now.... my wife wants me to go see dr and get on medicine but I am scared, dont' want to make things worse, but things are pretty bad right now..... from what I've read benzos help right away but many suggest only take long enough for SSRI's to kick in so I won't get addicted. It sounds like medicine is a hit or miss depending on person, dosage medicine, circumstances. I feel like my situation is because of circumstances so I am scared that medicine won't help but make worse,. advice please?
