Medications & Prescribed Drugs
While you should always follow your doctor’s advice with a href=”//entomophobia/medication-and-drugs/”>drugs and medications for Entomophobia, we are generally not in favor of using pharmaceuticals and recommend an approach that tackles the root cause of the problem.
Meds may seem to help in the short-term by ‘covering’ the symptoms, but the problem is that they can never cure the core issue of the fearful patterns of thinking that are the automatic reaction to insects or bugs.
