Should I be taking anxiety meds?

I've been getting lots of panic attacks lately and it's a lil hard to cope. Should I see my GP to get a prescription for anxiety meds?

Grounding techniques do work a lil bit though.

Also, I have had therapy too.

Yes I would go to my GP, hope you feel better very soon.

Keep on with the grounding techniques, but like Mayflower7 said yes for seeing your GP as he/she can help you out a bit more.
