  1. Hello Pavan,
    Anxiety is a complex problem. It may be generalised or episodic or phobic or panic. The usual course of treatment is cognitive behavior therapy and antianxiety medicines. Also, we need to screen for thyroid disorder, cortisol, vitamin b12, folate and Hb levels as these also contribute to anxiety. Any family history, any substance abuse will also affect the treatment plan. Ideally sir, we should start you on antianxiety medicines. Once, you are settled, CBT can be started and then gradually meds can be tapered off. Pls feel free to seek a private consultation for detailed mangement.
