Our expert says:
There are many alternative ways of successfully treating anxiety disorder, and a psychiatrist rather than a GP may be more familiar with them.
Many people are helped by using drugs also used to treat depression, such as Aropax, though we vary in how sensitive we may be to unpeasant side-effects, and may be much better suited by one AD rather than another.
This approach is better than the use of sedative-tranquillizers like valium, ALZAM, Xanor, and others, which can cause dependency problems, and tend to suppress the symptoms without actually improving or alleviating the underlying condition.
In my view the best approach, if you can find ( or if your doc can recommend one )a psychologist skilled with the technique, is CBT, Cognitive-behaviour therapy, a form of talking counselling which has been shown in research to be excellent and teaching you to control anxiety, control or avoid whatever triggers such attacks, and to handle stressful life problems better. Personally, I would usually prefer someone to use this method, perhaps adding whichever antidepressant works for them with minimal side-effects
"Tissue salts", I'm afraid, are pure quackery, and have no proven benefits whatever, other than the general placebo effect that helps us feel a bit better when taking absolutely anything we believe might help us.
