I am 30 yr old male suffering from anxiety from last 6 years. As I know that anxiolytic drugs have side effects and it's withdrawal symptoms can make the anxiety more worse than before, how one can be treated with this kind of medication? I am trying to control it by keeping myself busy, doing yoga, pranayam but can't avoid symptoms associated with this disorder. Is there any alternative treatment available to cure anxiety?

Dear , anxiety disorders are a 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. Yoga and pranayama are very good. In addition to that psychotherapy and awareness also helps. 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.
