It's really trial and error, and you need to have patience to find the right one for you.
The anxiety medication works well for me, not as good as I would like but were experimenting with dosage right now.
Theres nothing wrong with needing help, anything you need to do to help yourself be healthier. I cried like a baby in the office but afterwards I felt such a relief.
My dr told me to answer the questions as if I was answering them to myself and nobody else would see them. That helped, if I would've worried about what he thought I would have minimized A LOT.

I am currently trying to stop the AD I have been on them for almost 2 years. Without them I think I may have harmed myself as I believed it was the 'easier' option. I am much happier generally and more at peace then I have ever been.
It isn't the easier option, there is no shame in admitting you need some help to get past this. It won't always be this bad. Please believe that.
Best thing I gained in my divorce - my freedom.
Good luck with it

Do not take any more OR less than prescribed. Do not mix with anything, not even once, as instructed by your physician.
Missing a dose, or taking an extra dose when feeling bad can make things worse, so using AD's should be done with care for the best results.
That being said, AD's are a wonderful tool to help and aid recovery. It is difficult to think straight or make good decisions with a strangled and confused mind, or with sleep deprivation/hunger issues from malnourishment. A good regimen of AD's can help with sleep, eating disorders from trauma and overall improve your mental clarity in the short to medium term from trauma... which infidelity clearly is trauma!
