Anxiety disorder is one of the most common mental health disorders in the USA, and across the globe. Constant and overwhelming fear and worry are the defining characteristics of anxiety disorder. This is unlike the normal anxiety where the fear and worry are occasional, as dictated by circumstances.  Anxiety disorder is a serious mental condition that can get in the way of living a healthy and fulfilling life. It may affect all areas of life, from personal relationships, to school work, and performance at work.

The results or findings of both self-assessments and online anxiety disorder tests can give you a good idea of whether you need to see a therapist. Mental health professionals use the criteria given by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5). The manual is a publication of the American Psychiatric Association.  The mental health specialist will use psychological questionnaires, and ask questions relating to your medical history and symptoms.

Mental health professionals may also conduct a physical exam, and run blood, urine, and other tests, to rule out other medical conditions.

The National Institute of Mental Health lists 5 major types of anxiety disorders as follows:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Panic Disorder
  • Social Anxiety previously referred to as a social phobia

There are signs and symptoms specific to each type of anxiety disorder.

The standard treatment protocols for anxiety falls into two categories, that is, medication and psychotherapy.

 Psychopharmacology has been proven a safe and highly effective strategy for treating various types of anxiety disorders. Top among the medications typically used to manage and treat anxiety include antidepressants, and sedatives or tranquilizers such as benzodiazepines.

Psychotherapy, on the other hand, involves speaking to a mental health professional. Also called talk therapy, the mental health specialist will use a combination of several techniques to help with your anxiety disorder.

How long the treatment will last vary from one person to the next. You can expect best results within a reasonably short time if you follow instructions about dosage and keep up with your psychotherapy sessions. Some medications will be prescribed on a short-term basis, whereas others will be prescribed for use as part of a long-term treatment strategy for your anxiety disorder.
