How do you treat anxiety?

Psychiatric assessment 

Before developing a treatment plan, your psychiatrist conducts a thorough assessment to understand the nature and severity of your anxiety symptoms. This usually involves a detailed review of your medical history, a physical examination, and testing.

Medication Management 

In some cases, patients with anxiety disorders need medication to relieve their intrusive symptoms. Your psychiatrist prescribes the appropriate medication, carefully monitors medication usage, and adjusts dosages as needed to ensure optimal effectiveness and minimize side effects.

Lifestyle Modifications 

In addition to therapy and medication, making lifestyle modifications can help reduce anxiety symptoms. This may include incorporating stress-reduction techniques, such as mindfulness meditation and exercise, into your daily routine.
