Treating Generalized Anxiety Disorder - GAD

Treatment options for generalized anxiety disorder include psychotherapy, such as insight-oriented and cognitive-behavioral approaches, and medication. The value of medication is that it can help reduce the feelings of anxiety and apprehension associated with GAD. Your physician or a psychiatrist can prescribe the medication that she/he thinks would be best for you.

One drawback to a medication-only approach to treatment for GAD is that when the medication is stopped, symptoms most often return. Medication may be an essential part of your treatment, while you learn—in therapy—how to handle your problems more effectively.
