Question by piratewench: What treatment is possible for anxiety disorders?
I’m going to a psychologist in two weeks. I think I have an anxiety disorder (constant and illogical worry and nervousness over silly things or nothing at all, often to the point of making myself sick). Anyway, if I am diagnosed I’m curious about the possible treatments I may encounter. And if anyone knows of a support forum it would be greatly appreciated.

There are on-going studies being conducted to help us better ascertain the complexity of the brain, and therefore being able to properly treat GAD.

A Step Closer to Drug Addiction and Phobia Treatment

Article by Nikhil Chaudhry

Scientists are now looking into solving drug abuse cases by studying on a certain medication that could possibly be the most effective drug for treating addiction. This specific drug is also known to control phobias. The US Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory provides further evidence that a drug known as D- cycloserine could play a role in helping to extinguish the craving behaviors associated with drug abuse, or specifically, with the addiction to psychotropic drugs. Their study found that mice treated with D-cycloserine were less likely to spend time in an environment where they had previously been trained to expect cocaine than mice treated with a placebo.

A graduate student from Stony Brook University working under Brookhaven Laboratory, Carlos Bermeo said that since the association between drugs and the places where they are used can trigger craving and/or relapse in humans, a medication that could aid in the reduction or even extinction of such responses could be a powerful tool in the treatment of addiction.

Article by Monnu15

Here you will discover what some of them are, and how the fear of another anxiety attack is often the trigger of one. It is perhaps a good idea to look first to the cause of anxiety attacks in order to understand how their treatment should be addressed.The underlying cause of anxiety attacks – panic attacks – is higher than normal levels of anxiety. Now, everyone suffers from anxiety, which is quite natural. However, these levels are manageable, and people just get that day. But some people have higher levels of anxiety are so intense, continuous and prolonged that totally interferes with your ability to succeed on an almost daily basis. Sometimes referred to as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). So when a stressful event occurs every day on top of an already high level of anxiety, an anxiety attack is triggered.

Now let’s look at drugs based on drugs used in anxiety attack treatment. Some of the most common selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are a group of drugs in the class of antidepressants. These work on the chemistry of your brain to control and standardize the excitement and humor. Other common drugs are used minor tranquilizers to calm you down.
