Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress and can be beneficial in some situations. It can alert us to dangers and help us prepare and pay attention. Anxiety disorders differ from normal feelings of nervousness or fear and involve excessive worry or anxiety. Anxiety disorders are the most common of mental disorders and affect nearly 30-40% percent of adults at some point in their lives. Several members of the benzodiazepine class are routinely used to provide relief from anxiety.

These minor tranquilizers are safe and effective but should be used only for short-term relief. They have many side effects, including drowsiness, and memory disturbances, and can be habit-forming at higher doses. People taking these medications should not use heavy machinery or drive until they understand how the medication might affect them for risk of accidents and injury. Older people regularly using them without doctor`s advice might be at risk of fall and pelvic fractures.

 

Some individuals might have a paradoxical response to anxiolytic medications. Antidepressants are widely used to treat anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia and social anxiety disorder. The most commonly prescribed medications are from the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) class. They are generally effective and have few side effects, although they take some time to show appreciable effects in form of relief from anxiety.

 

Other medications used are alpha-2 delta ligands, SNRI, beta-blockers. We provide scientific treatment for anxiety spectrum illnesses according to latest guidelines like medications, counseling, hypnosis, relaxation techniques, and other recommended modalities.

 

A common indication for admission might include the inability to decrease benzodiazepines for long term, severe restlessness or inability to sit at a place, severe vocational, occupational, or personal impairment, suicidal ideations, and medication cross titration.
