Treating Anxiety: How to treat Anxiety?

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety disorders are serious medical illnesses that affect approximately 19 million American adults. These disorders fill people’s lives with overwhelming anxiety and fear. Unlike the relatively mild, brief anxiety caused by a stressful event such as a business presentation or a first date, anxiety disorders are chronic, relentless, and can grow progressively worse if not treated. If you think you have an anxiety disorder, you should seek information and treatment.

    How to treat Anxiety?

    How to treat anxiety depends on person to person. In general, treating anxiety can be done in two ways:

  • Medication
  • Psychotherapy (also called “therapy”)
  •  
    Both approaches can be effective for most disorders. The choice of one or the other, or both, depends on the patient’s and the doctor’s preference, and also on the particular anxiety disorder. For example, only psychotherapy has been found effective for specific phobias. When choosing a therapist, you should find out whether medications will be available if needed.

    When treating anxiety, you and your doctor or therapist will be working together as a team. Together, you will attempt to find the approach that is best for you. If one treatment doesn’t work, the odds are good that another one will. And new treatments are continually being developed through research. So don’t give up hope.
