You’re contradicting yourself a little, if you don’t mind me saying. In some conditions, the medication may take the edge of how you are feeling, you are right. They don’t give you a “fake happy”. Believe me, I’ve been on medication for 19 years.Technically, they do. You can still feel your problems..but not on the surface..the drugs give you a fake happy but you still know that your problems are there below the surface. They do nothing to take away what is causing you the anxiety in the first place.
Not all drugs work the same way, though. Some conditions are much more than just anxiety.
