Many options: Anxiety management is complex but achievable with the right physician guiding you. I like to think of it as a bicycle wheel with many spokes with each spoke representing a treatment modality. Learn more about relaxation techniques, yoga, meditation, exercise etc. There are many psychotropic meds on the market also that are both safe and effective. Always seek professional help when in need.
