Getting Treatment for Anxiety

Anxiety is very difficult to deal with.  We, as physicians, often turn to medications and medications are a good option, but you have to look at the underlying issues surrounding the anxiety.  Are there problems that need greater treatment?  I believe that counseling is a critical part of any psychiatric issue.  One of the problems with anxiety is people are afraid to see the doctor.  They don't want to admit they have a weakness.  They're afraid it will somehow follow them throughout their life.  Believe me, when it comes to anxiety, I believe you have to look at all these issues, but don't be afraid of treatment.

We appreciate all your comments.
