Although the exact cause is unknown, it is necessary to take measures to avoid anxiety. When signs and symptoms appear, it is recommended to ask for help from a specialist so that it does not worsen, enjoy interaction with family and friends to reduce worries, avoid the consumption of alcohol and other substances.
The combination of psychotherapy and medication is the first treatment option that may have the greatest benefits.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is effective in treating anxiety disorders and controlling signs and symptoms.
Medications to control anxiety include certain antidepressants such as Buspirone, and certain sedatives such as benzodiazepines or beta-blockers.
