What are Anxiety Disorders?
Anxiety is your body’s natural response to stress; a feeling of fear or apprehension about what’s to come. But if your feelings of anxiety or fear are extreme, last for longer than six months, and are taking over your life, you may have an anxiety disorder. People with persistent symptoms lasting at least six months are often diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Anxiety disorders are the most common form of emotional disorder and can affect anyone at any age. They can be the result of brain chemistry imbalances, environmental factors, substance abuse, or a combination of several factors. Patients with anxiety may suffer from depression and may also experience physical symptoms such as heart palpitations, restlessness, fatigue, nausea and trembling. If left untreated, the anxiety will keep getting worse.
Remedies & Treatments for Anxiety
Those diagnosed with anxiety should explore treatment options with their doctor. For some patients, medical treatment is not necessary, and lifestyle changes are enough to cope with the symptoms. But in moderate or severe cases, treatment can help patients overcome the symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Treatment for anxiety falls into two categories: psychotherapy and medication. A therapist or psychologist can help you learn tools to use and strategies to cope with anxiety. Common remedies and treatments include:
- Getting enough sleep
- Eating a healthy diet
- Avoiding caffeine, cigarettes, drugs and alcohol
- Conquering fears
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Benzodiazepines such as Valium, Xanax, Ativan, and Klonopin
- Antidepressants including Zoloft, Paxil, Prozac, Lexapro, Celexa, and Effexor
- Tricyclics such as Tofranil and Anafranil
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) such as Nardil, Parnate, and Marlin
