Hi. I’m Dr. Mark. I’m a board certified physician and happy to assist you. Sorry to hear about your partner.  Has he or she been treated with medication for anxiety?

While I wait to hear back from you, I’ll give you general information.   There are many great classes of medications to great anxiety. Such as SSRIs, NSRIs and benzodiazepines.   Your partner’s doctor needs to prescribe medication to see which class works.

Dr. Mark and other Medical Specialists are ready to help you

A psychologist would also be very helpful.
