Depending on the severity of the problem, treatments for anxiety include school counseling, family therapy, and cognitive-behavioral or dynamic psychotherapy, sometimes combined with antianxiety drugs.
Also, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, St. John's Wort should not be used in conjunction with other antidepressant or antianxiety medications as it can cause adverse side effects.
With pharmacological advances and the development of synthetic drugs, which act in specific ways on brain chemicals, a more refined set of antianxiety drugs became available.
Anorexics have been treated with a variety of medications, including antidepressants, antianxiety drugs, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, and lithium carbonate.
Always consult a physician with any questions or concerns and don't ever take St. John's Wort while you're taking another antidepressant or antianxiety medication.
