Several years ago my family doctor diagnosed me with generalized anxiety, acute panic disorder, and
OCD. I was on medication (citalopram and
lorazopam) for several months. Later, I tapered off of the medication. I began seeing a personal trainer, adjusted my diet, and saw a cognitive therapist, and most of the debilitating symptoms went dormant. I still suffer from residual symptoms of anxiety: excessive sweating, IBS, and occasional insomnia.
