Treatments for Anxiety
One of the most effective treatments for anxiety is talking therapy or counselling, especially when combined with lifestyle changes such as daily exercise, deep breathing exercises, yoga and relaxation.
There are self-help courses available and these are often prescribed by a GP. The material is often good but can be hard to understand and correctly process when anxious. Talking to a trusted 3rd party often provides a quicker response – either a respected friend or trained counsellor.
Medication is usually only considered after counselling has been offered. Anti-depressants can be offered – such as an SSRI, (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor), that works by increasing the level of a chemical, called serotonin, in your brain. These can take a while to work, (several weeks), and can have similar side-effects to the symptoms of anxiety.
