Anxiety Medication

Not all health conditions are physical in nature. Some, like anxiety, are issues of the mind. A significant portion of the US population — around 18% — experience anxiety disorders each year. Though it’s not a condition that you can “see,” it’s one that can have a highly debilitating impact on the person experiencing the illness.

Fortunately, people with anxiety don’t have to battle their way through the disorder on their own. A range of treatment options are available, including medication. There’s a host of medications used in the treatment of anxiety, with many shown to be highly effective. Sometimes, they’re prescribed in conjunction with other anxiety treatments, such as therapy and lifestyle changes, but not always.

There’s more than one type of anxiety medication. There are several commonly prescribed anxiety medications; each of these works slightly different from the other and are used to treat different kinds of anxiety. Before you get anxiety meds online, a healthcare professional will ask questions about your symptoms, lifestyle, and more before selecting the anxiety medication that would be right for you. Though it can be challenging to live with anxiety and is often a long-term issue, the availability of online anxiety medication means that those with the disorder can manage their condition.

What is Anxiety? 

Most people are at least a little familiar with anxiety — it’s the feeling you get when you’re about to give a presentation or to do something important. These small, occasional feelings of anxiety are completely normal and do not require medication.

Anxiety becomes a medical concern when a person experiences regular, intense bouts of anxious thoughts and feelings, even when there’s no direct cause for the anxiety. Anxiety disorders can have a wide range of symptoms, including panic attacks, constant worrying, and avoiding places and situations that might trigger an anxiety attack (for instance, work or social gatherings). If anxiety is impacting a person’s ability to live normally, professional intervention may be required.

How Is Anxiety treated?

Anxiety disorders are usually treated through psychotherapy, medication, or both. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most common and effective psychotherapy treatment for anxiety. It’s generally used on a short-term basis to teach skills and coping mechanisms that the person with anxiety can apply to their everyday life to manage the disorder.

There are many types of anxiety medications available that can help to reduce the symptoms associated with anxiety disorders. Medications such as buspirone and some antidepressants have been shown to be effective against anxiety on a long-term basis. Other drugs are prescribed on a short-term basis.

How Does Anxiety Medication Work?

There are a number of anxiety medications, and they all work in different ways. The most common anxiety medication types are antidepressants, benzodiazepines, beta-blockers, and buspirone.

Antidepressants treat anxiety by increasing the amount of serotonin, which helps to improve the way the brain communicates. Other antidepressants impact the balance of the brain’s chemistry. Both can help to ease the symptoms of anxiety.

Benzodiazepines target gamma-aminobutyric acid, a neurotransmitter. They can be used to quickly calm down an active mind.

Beta-blockers prevent chemical signals within the nervous system from attaching to beta receptors. These signals are often released during moments of anxiety, resulting in increased blood pressure and heart rate.

Buspirone works similarly to SSRI-type antidepressants by affecting the brain’s serotonin levels.

What Are Common Side Effects of Anxiety medication?

As with most medications, there can be side effects of taking medication to treat anxiety disorder, though these side effects vary from drug to drug and from person to person.

The most common side effects include dry mouth, nausea, reduced appetite, heartburn, diarrhea, and trouble sleeping. Non-physical side effects can include irritability and nervousness.

Some types of anxiety medications can lead to long-term problems. Benzodiazepines carry an increased risk of dependency and addiction. For this reason, they’re usually only prescribed on a short-term basis. Stopping antidepressant and benzodiazepine medications can lead to withdrawal symptoms.

What is the most common anxiety medication?

There are many medications used in the treatment of anxiety. They all work with the same goal in mind — to reduce symptoms of anxiety — but how they do it and which forms of anxiety they treat can differ. There are pros and cons to each type of anxiety medication. When you seek anxiety treatment online, the healthcare professional will determine which one is right for you, as well as give you clear information about the advantages and disadvantages of the medication.

The most common SSRI and SSNI medications are Paxil, Celexa, Luvox, Zoloft, Pristiq, Effexor XR, and Cymbalta.
