How are you feeling this week??? I know you have been having a hard time for a while and wondered if things are any better. My question can wait . . . no need to answer today if you are feeling tired. . . just when you feel up to it.
Do you know how much anxiety a patient should experience before considering the use of medication for anxiety? My dad has a very hard time being away from home. He can enjoy some things sometimes . . . but even something like golfing at the driving range lasts only 10 - 15 minutes and he wants to go home. He seems desperate to get back there and then he has nothing to do. It is very hard for mom to shop, as she takes him with her and he steers the cart toward the checkout at every turn.
He is ok while we drive to one activity . . . but then he wants to get back to the house. If his doctor prescribed an anxiety med, could it be used 'as needed' or would it need to be an additional drug used every day??
Thanks Lyn . . . I appreciate your help.
