It's time to relegate prescription medications for anxiety and depression to last resort treatment

Apr 28 2015 - 8:10pm
Depression and anxiety

I recently wrote a book on treating anxiety disorders, Anxiety Protocol, and asked a psychiatrist colleague to review the book. He stated he liked the book very much, and was in full agreement with the recommendation of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as first-line treatment for anxiety disorders. However, he disagreed initially with my recommendation that prescription medication for anxiety disorder should be last resort treatment, and only then should be prescribed for severe cases or for psychotherapy-resistant cases. My colleague went on to opine that in moderate to severe cases, he saw the use of prescription medication “in association” with CBT, or as an adjunct to CBT, not as a “last resort.” Otherwise, he found contents of the book very useful.

Moreover the rates of relapse and recurrence were extremely high over a one year follow up period even in those who achieved remission.
