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.

Generalised anxiety disorder. Generalised anxiety disorder is a persistent and common disorder, in which the patient has unfocused worry and anxiety that is not connected to recent stressful events, although it can be aggravated by certain situations. This disorder is twice as common in women than it is in men. Generalised anxiety disorder is characterised by feelings of threat, restlessness, irritability, sleep disturbance, and tension, and symptoms such as palpitations, dry mouth (...) , and sweating. These symptoms are recognised as part of the anxiety syndrome rather than independent complaints. The symptoms overlap greatly with those of other common mental disorders and we could regard the disorder as part of a spectrum of mood and related disorders rather than an independent disorder. Generalised anxiety disorder has a relapsing course, and intervention rarely results in complete resolution of symptoms, but in the short term and medium term, effective treatments include psychological
