Hmmm...that person was not a doctor I assume. Did that person go to 8 plus years of medical school and have the experience of treating and prescribing for patients that suffer the effects of anxiety?
I wonder if this person was just parroting bad information, or perhaps were stating their opinion as fact?
Whether or not to take medication is a personal decision that is not easily made. I would encourage you to consult your doctor only...as he/she is the only professional qualified to help you make your decision...and trust your own wisdom...not the careless words of others.:)
Good luck in whatever you utimately decide!
