Did medications work for you?


I'm curious, medications often cause a wide variety of effects. But did they help you? For a large part even if they did remove your anxiety, you would still be intrinsically you however. Through CBT and books, it helps gain perspectives in ways you are behaving as many are further inducing your own anxiety (feeding it even). So I'm curious as to if medications helped you somehow care less what others think. Wouldn't they simply make you feel numb and less sensitive and kill all motivation? They are useful for a lot of things, but I think if it kills your sensitivity and ability to feel you'd be so detached and without a soul even LOL.

Did anyone become more extroverted on medication or simply you felt less anxiety but less inclined to interact because of itl? It is a curious question indeed.
