Suggest treatment for generalized anxiety disorder
medicines and CBT
Thanks for writing to us.
Best treatment of generalized anxiety disorder(GAD) includes both medicines and cognitive behavior therapy(CBT).
In mild cases only CBT is sufficient. In moderate to severe cases initially medicines and then CBT is added. And later on medicines stopped gradually.
If medicines alone are used chances of relapse are more after stopping the medicines.
In medicines SSRI group of drugs(fluoxetine,paroxetine,sertraline, escitalopram) are main stay of the treatment.I prefer paroxetine. Benzodiazepines group of drugs(clonazeapm,lorazepam or etizolam) are used initially for short duration for fast symptomatic relief.
Hope I have answered your query, I will be happy to help further.
