Does anybody have any positive thoughts on medication, my daughter suffers from constant low mood and anxiety and I have tried so many things but I’m considering going to the doctor for more help!!!

    I would think the drs would be the best place to go with your daughter. Especially has you have tryed everything else, they may not give medication but may refer to to see someone, it's difficult to say really what they will decide.

    Hi @tigerstar, Some people do find medication helps them with their mood, but it's a very personal process to find the right balance of medication.

    It's probably best that you or your daughter speak to your GP to see if there's anything they can suggest that might be helpful. They'll be able to tell you whether medication is the best route or refer her onwards to any other type of treatment or therapies. I hope things start getting better for her soon :)

    I would agree with your plan of action to see the doctor

    I have found that with mental health, they tend to prescribe meds (or suggest other treatments) with your input rather than just tell you what to take/do, so between you you should be able to come up with something that you are happy to try
