Well, I'd have to say it's both. I did therapy for a while without taking any meds, and therapy definitely helped on it's own. Even my husband commented on it. And then when I started taking meds on top of that, my whole life turned around.

I understand about not wanting to take meds - I felt that same way. But boy am I glad I changed my mind. I hope to one day do all this without the meds, but for now, I'm just thrilled to be really happy and relaxed for the first time in my life. I think it's helping my therapy too. I don't get as tied up in knots on therapy days, and I don't have any T days where I can't muster the will to speak. That used to happen all the time. Now it feels like every therapy session is productive. So, that's something to consider, too, when trying to figure how to get your money's worth.

Good luck! I hope you are able to make a decision that really helps you.
