Well you have GAD, so thats why you take medications. If you were a diabetic you would have to take Insulin. Think about your meds like this, you have a medical condition that requires treatment. Why suffer thru the GAD without the medication if you don't have to. Sometimes you have to try a few meds to find the right one for YOU. Don't give up, better days are ahead.
