dear patient,

one of the most successful non medication therapies for anger control is cognitive behavioral therapy conducted by a clinical psychologist. Regular exercise, particularly some modalities such as tai chi or yoga are also quite effective to improve these symptoms. finally, sometimes medications such as fluoxetine, citalopram, venlafaxine and others from the antidepressant family may be beneficial to control both anger and anxiety

hope this helps as an initial idea i am glad you are seeking help

Dear patient,

The ayurvedic line of treatment for the anxiety disorders includes the use of herbs and medicines, inhalation therapy), mantra, and life style modification.
The herbs used as anti-anxiety drugs are sarpagandha, khus, jatamansi, bramhi, kevada, vacha, tagar, amla, and XXXXXXX the XXXXXXX (brain tonics /intellect improvisers) category drugs are used to balance the loss of concentration, memory, and insomniac disturbances. The nervine tonics like ashvagandha and XXXXXXX are used to strengthen the nervous system. the choorna of single and multiple combinations are used. Like saraswat choorna, tagaradi choorna and ashvagandhadi choorna, and single drug choorna like vacha choorna, jatamansi choorna are used. along with these medicines the rasayana preparation brahmi rasayana, ghrita (ghee based medicines) like maha paishachik ghrita, panchagavya ghrita, puran ghrita, and brahmi ghrita are given to the patient.
For controlling the insomniac conditions the jatamansi kwath (decoction) and madananand modak (big shaped sugar mixed pill) are described as anti-anxiety drugs. The herb brahmi (bacopa monari) is a good anti anxiety medicine and have good anti stress property (see- bacopa monari). The jatamansi herb is also a good sedative and is safe, as it doesn’t perform the dependency.
The regular use of brahmi medicated oil on scalp at bedtime and inhalation is a better preventive measure to avoid the anxiety disorders.
