Hello doctor,

I am eight months pregnant now and I am suffering from anxiety. I consulted a doctor and he gave me Etizola 0.5 g medicine and this helps to make me feel normal. But, now I feel I am emotionally mute. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Anxiety disorders come under the category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms such as a racing heart and shakiness.

There are a number of anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety.

Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety.

I suggest you gather knowledge about anxiety, progressive counseling, and progressive psychotherapy. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.

Regards.
