About "Anxiety Disorders"
The various anxiety disorders are generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, phobia-related disorder, and social anxiety disorder. The general symptoms are uneasiness, sleep disturbances, sweating, numb and tingling hands or feet, dyspnea, palpitations, dry mouth, nausea, dizziness, and fear. The exact cause of anxiety is still not apparent, but the factors like mental illness, environmental stress, and genes seem to play a role in bringing it on. Antidepressants like Escitalopram and Fluoxetine help with the symptoms. Benzodiazepines like Alprazolam and Clonazepam are also used in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder. Cognitive behavioral therapy, which is a form of psychotherapy, helps in changing behaviors that trigger anxiety or panic attack.
