Question by Cody D: How I can talk to my doctor about getting a social anxiety disorder medication?
I have been trying to fix my SAD(social anxiety disorder) for a very long time. Ive been looking up things online, talked to parents about it, talked to a therapist about it, but it still is quite bad, even though some of the things online helped some. I cant get rid of it though even through all of those attempts. The thing I think is nesecary is medication. Ive heard about xanax,zoloft,ect. Not to mention, I also have generalized anxiety disorder(GAD), because im always worried about if I have health issues, what someone is planning to do to me, and what might happen, although the SAD is 3x worse.
I also have ADHD, and I have adderall for that. Will my doctor think I am abusing drugs if I try to get xanax or something like this because these medicines are highly wanted and abused. I really need both if these medicines though because I also have bad ADHD. How can I talk to my parents about getting a adderall and xanax prescription without both of them being suspicious?
Why would it matter if you got addicted to them if yur going to take them anyways?

I reccomend you talk to your doctor about taking Zoloft. I’ve dealt with anxiety since the loss of a VERY close person last year and my doctor gave me Zoloft for 6 months, my life has improved drastically and I am now almost anxiety free. Just schedule a regular appointment with your Physician.
