Anxiety

Anxiety is the subjectively feelings of dread over anticipated events and it is different from fear. Clinical anxiety is a group of mental disorders with generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) being the most common (approximately 22% of primary care attendances for anxiety are classed as GAD). Overall, there is a lifetime prevalence rate of 4-7%. Anxiety can be caused by a number of factors typically classified as environmental surroundings and genetic.

In the past few decades anxiety research has significantly increased. In 2000 there were approximately 430 trials looking at anxiety and by 2015 to over 1,000. This has allowed medical professionals to develop and improve accurate diagnosis and treatments in patients suffering from the condition.

Anxiety is normal in uncomfortable environments or stressful situations. However, some individuals experience intense and persistent amounts of anxiety which needs to be kept under control. Treatments include pharmaceuticals such as SSRIs, benzodiazepines, pregabalin and gabapentin. Other therapies include CBT, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing.

Trip has all the latest evidence relating to treatments for anxiety, this includes systematic reviews, clinical guidelines, controlled trials, evidence-based synopses, case reports and clinical Q&As.
