Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

Cause of severe anxiety is the body's normal "alarm system," the set of mental and physical mechanisms that allows a person to respond to a threat, tends to be triggered unnecessarily, when there is no danger.

Several medicines can make anxiety attacks less severe or stop them altogether. Specific members of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor(SSRI) and the benzodiazepine families of medications are approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat anxiety disorder.Cognitive-behavior therapy & psychotherapy also may help greatly.

Anxiety is due to excessive tension. The best cure for anxiety/tension is rest.Get more sleep and enjoy your life.You can take tab.Benadryl from your counter as this will induce sleep & will treat anxiety attack.

So I advise you to please make an appointment with your doctor & discuss for the above medications & hence the treatment will be done accordingly.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
