Hi,
Thanks for using healthcare magic.

Anxiety can be controlled and cured.

For cure, you need to find out
- Type of anxiety, whether it is generalized, specific, social or panic
- Cause of anxiety
- Associated meducal condution or unerlying physical cause if any.

There are two modes of treatment. It can usually be combined.
1- Drugs like clonazepam, etizolam , lorazepam or antidepressant drugs like peroxetine or sertraline.

2- Stress management and counselling. Relaxation therapy like yoga, meditation or breathing exercise is also helpful to control and prevent anxiety episodes.

You should consult your psychiatrist to determine plan of treatment.

I hope I have addressed your concern.

Feel free to revert to me in case if you have further query.

Thanks.
