The best treatment for anxiety disorder is a comprehensive plan developed by a licensed doctor. It can contain prescription management, therapy sessions, and learning self-help techniques.

This condition comes in many forms and may be caused by both physical and mental issues. If you constantly feel anxious, consider visiting a professional to go through an assessment and get the first-line treatment for anxiety. While self-help techniques may reduce symptoms, only a doctor will recommend the most effective treatment, be it medications, CBT counseling, the modification of daily routines, or other approaches.

Severe symptoms may require taking certain medications. Also, therapy sessions in CBT, psychodynamic, and exposure methods proved to be beneficial. Before visiting a mental health expert and getting anxiety disorder treatment and prescription online, practice relaxation techniques, be physically active, and avoid alcohol and caffeine.

Anxiety Assessment

Anxiety assessment usually starts by identifying the physical causes of your symptoms.
If there are no such reasons, contact a mental health professional.

one
A psychologist or a psychiatrist examines your state asking about your symptoms and how they influence your work, education, or relationships. Since the signs of anxiety can also indicate other illnesses like depression, it is important to rule them out.
two
A mental health specialist will compare your symptoms with the ones mentioned in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) to confirm the diagnosis.

Self-assessment allows you to understand if you have experienced single panic attacks or have a disorder. Still, answering questionnaires cannot replace medical diagnoses made by a licensed healthcare specialist.

At MEDvidi, we use the SmartCare symptoms checker as the primary anxiety assessment tool. Then, you connect with a licensed doctor who will provide you with a diagnosis via a telemedicine service.

Pharmacological treatment of anxiety disorders is varied in active ingredients and effectiveness and is chosen individually. The drug choice depends on one’s diagnosis, taking other medicines, and additional aspects revealed during an assessment.

Anxiety Prescription Management

Commonly Prescribed Medications:

Antidepressants

The most common antidepressants prescribed to treat anxiety are SSRIs (Prozac) and SNRIs (Effexor). Tricyclics and MAOIs are less popular because of their frequent side effects. Another antidepressant with proven high efficacy in curing such disorders is Bupropion.

Buspirone

Buspirone is a specific anti-anxiety medication that reduces symptoms such as fear, dizziness, tension, irritability, and others. Its significant positive effect is usually noted in 2-4 weeks.

Beta-blockers

Beta-blockers are usually prescribed to cure heart-related conditions that may result from severe symptoms. These medications help to treat hypertension and irregular heartbeat and come with a relaxation effect.
