"I want to start but I can't!" has meds helped for anyone who has this problem?

Mostly this is my problem-- Inertia. I panic (not classic panic attacks w physical symptoms though) and 'blank/zone out' and lose focus/train of thought (rinse and repeat), all the effort goes to trying to make myself study and just do it.
I am not medicated and do not have an official label. My therapist will moving soon and I'm trying to talk to her about it although here we are very cautious (and i guess rightfully so) about medication. For those who have similar 'issue's, has anyone found meds to be helpful in overcoming the inertia? Or do the meds really only help concentration.
