My son has tried a couple of meds for his anxiety/ADD and was extremely suicidal and ended up in a mental health unit. He does not want to try anymore meds because he had such a horrible experience. He says all he needs is Ativan, but of course that's not something a physician would be willing to prescribe.

What do we do now? He is going to counselling but at this point he is feeling like he has lost his life to anxiety. What do people do in this situation. It is killing me to watch him like this. It is literally controlling his life. Any suggestions?
