“Anti-anxiety medications are highly stigmatized and misunderstood. Many people believe they can fully “cure” anxiety, while others may think they are too dangerous.
In reality, for certain patients and certain types of anxiety, these medications can be a highly effective—even life-changing—treatment when used in conjunction with therapy. It all comes down to the right diagnosis, because the right diagnosis will get you the right treatment.
Ensuring the right diagnosis begins with empowering yourself with a thorough understanding of each type of anxiety treatment available—which you’ll get in this series, from a world-renowned double board-certified psychiatrist.

The word “anxiety” can encompass a wide range of symptoms, and medication regimens will vary widely—-so it’s crucial to understand the ins and outs of each type. This is your comprehensive guide to anti-anxiety medications.”
