Does anxiety medication work? Watch
your body/mind is amazing tho' as you say, a bit stressed recently, perhaps just the amazingly valuable placebo effect of having a shiny pill might make things better. worth trying one. I had a friend similar to you who just took some (official) tablets (once) in order to (illegally) pass her driving test. That worked.
My Other friend very recently attended a prestigious university (abroad), felt depressed, alone, unhappy etc - went to the uni psychologist (first session for free) diagnosed with an full A4 sheet of actual , real , urgent problems requiring powerful drugs, many sessions with the psychologist etc etc.- so he failed the exams at the end of first year (another symptom), and I helped him to get into a slightly less prestigious, normal, university of Leeds - not doing the prestigious Engineering degree that he thought he wanted to do, but instead focussing on his background hobby for languages. He's now in year two at Leeds, all that A4 sheet of officially diagnosed "problems" have completely disappeared, no psychologists needed, no drugs. Tho' he stopped using an acne cream as it 'might' have too active chemicals in it. Now he's very happy, completely changed, dating seriously. His drug of choice was to move environment, find his path, reduce stress level, drink the odd small bottle of cider. Be at a fun university, true collegiate place, rather than fighting at the top. That's what impressed me about the University of the West of Scotland also, they really care for their students.
As you are also a unique natural individual, you will find your path! Stop reacting, start planning. Try and work out where you want to go and who you want to be. You might have to try a few options before you get there.
So in summary drugs might work, but they are a bit 'sledgehammer-like' in their finesse, which I can see that you recognise, You should also consider accurate lifestyle changes like this https://www.healthline.com/health/tr...ith-tryptophan
be sure and look-after your inner hunter-gatherer, there might be sabre-toothed tigers around!
