Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to the forum

Relaxation exercises are undoubtly helpful in managing anxiety symptoms

But if you are still experiencing the symptoms and your routine activities are hampered....then i advise you to consult your psychiatrist.... as pharmacological treatment is also important to get rid of these symptoms.

Also you can have psychotherapy sessions like CBT, Behaviour therapy etc

Good Luck

Psychiatrist Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar's  Response
Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

Anxiety disorders are generally chronic problems. The response to treatment differs with each person. Some may require treatment for a few months only, some for several years. Medication is not the only solution to your anxiety. If you are able to control your symptoms with yoga, relaxation exercises, counselling, etc. then medication is not required to be continued. There are certain good psychotherapy techniques like cognitive behaviour therapy, which can give you effective and long-lasting results. So, please be persistent in your efforts and stay positive.

Wish you all the best.
