Cognitive : Cognitive behavioral therapy is a good treatment option. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (like paxil, (paroxetine) zoloft, celexa, Prozac etc) are effective treatment strategies , however for more acute management of anxiety , benzodiazepines (like ativan, klonopin, xanax etc) could be used for the short term.Mirtazapine is also a reasonably good choice, especially if insomnia and/or poor appetite is also a concern.
