What is the treatment for anxiety disorder?

A few days ago i had a hot shower, which is normal for me because im always cold. I got out and went to my room. I was laying on my bed and my heart started pounding. I've had anxiety attacks in the past so i knew i had to stay calm and i was telling myself it was ok but it lasted for almost an hour which it never has before, should i be worried?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello,

Some natural ways to treat anxiety and daily stress are
-Exercise
-Meditation
-Deep breathing and hyperventilation
-Proper sleep
-Stress-free activity
-Do pleasurable activity
-Music and hobbies
-Discuss with friends
-See all thing with a different angle
-Positive outlook
-Confidence
All this will help you to counter daily stress.

Medicines:
I have treated so many patients with a mild dose of the benzodiazepine and a mild dose of Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). In SSRI mild dose of escitalopram and paroxetine like the drug is very useful. But before taking these medicines you have to consult a psychiatrist and evaluate yourself, after proper evaluation. He will guide you further.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Vishal Garala
