What treatment options are used to assist patients with anxiety disorders?
Treatment options usually consist of a combination of medication and psychotherapy. [ Antidepressant agents are the drugs of choice in the treatment of anxiety disorders, particularly the newer agents, which have a safer adverse effect profile and higher ease of use than the older tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Behavioral therapy and
CBT have demonstrated efficacy through controlled studies. Computerized CBT (FearFighter) has been recommended for panic and phobia by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence guidelines (NICE). Deciding which treatment or combination of treatments to prescribe depends on a careful interview and assessment of the patient?s goals and level of pathology. ]
