Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental illnesses in the U.S. Nearly 1 out of every 5 American adults suffers from some form of chronic anxiety. Anxiety is a common feeling experienced by everyone from time to time. We naturally feel anxious when a deadline is approaching or when one of our family members becomes ill. This is to be expected and our anxiety level decreases once the situation is resolved.
Anxiety disorders are different, however. Those suffering from an anxiety disorder experience frequent, intense fear that is persistent and disproportionate to the cause of the anxiety. Many times, they are not sure why they are anxious, they just are. Anxiety can produce symptoms such as nervousness, difficulty concentrating, elevated heart rate, gastrointestinal problems and trouble sleeping. Anxiety disorders can interfere many aspects of your daily life. For example, they can cause problems at work, at home and the relationships that you have with those around you.
There are many types of anxiety disorders. Common examples include general anxiety disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, separation anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and specific phobias. Treatment options commonly used to manage anxiety disorders include antidepressants (i.e. Prozac), anxiolytics (i.e. Xanax) and psychotherapy, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Fortunately, researchers have now discovered an innovative treatment for anxiety disorders! IV ketamine therapy has been shown to decrease symptoms of anxiety within hours to days of treatment. Although everyone’s response to medical treatment is unique, many are finding that ketamine has given them the ability to take control of their lives once again!
