FAQs About Treating Anxiety
How is anxiety different from normal worrying?
Everyone worries sometimes, but that is different from a clinical anxiety diagnosis.
Most often when people refer to anxiety, they mean generalized anxiety disorder. Those dealing with generalized anxiety disorder tend to feel worried, anxious, or nervous even when there is little or no reason to worry. Their anxiety is difficult to control and affects their daily lives. Generalized anxiety disorder affects 6.8 million adults of the US population.
There are other anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, social anxiety, stress, phobias, PTSD, and certain depressive disorders.
What causes anxiety disorders?
There is no single answer that applies to everyone.
For some people, anxiety disorders appear to be genetic, running through generations of their family. Anxiety can also arise out of trauma or stress. It can be a result of brain chemistry, when neurotransmitters aren’t produced or processed as expected. Anxiety can be created or made worse by alcohol or substance use, and by withdrawal from those same substances. Anxiety disorders can also accompany some medical conditions and chronic pain.
An anxiety order is not a sign of weakness; it is a medical condition with many possible causes.

Can I drink while taking medication for anxiety?
Mixing alcohol and anxiety meds can make you feel more anxious, or can even put your health at risk. With some medications, your doctor may okay moderate drinking. If you don’t know whether you’ll be able to abide by your doctor’s suggested limits, it’s safest not to drink at all.
If you have a dual diagnosis of alcohol use disorder and an anxiety disorder, make sure your doctor knows about both. It may affect which medication or therapy is most effective for your treatment.
