Course Overview

Anxiety disorders continue to have a high prevalence across the U.S. and much of the world. These disorders are divided into several subcategories, including social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, selective mutism, panic disorder, specific phobia, generalized anxiety disorder, and agoraphobia. Treatment options for anxiety disorders include lifestyle modifications, psychotherapy, and pharmacotherapy. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors are generally considered first-line therapy for anxiety disorders, but other agents may be used as well. Proper monitoring is necessary with these medications as they can have serious adverse effects. Pharmacists can play a vital role in education and help provide recommendations for selecting an optimal medication based on patient-specific factors. Knowledge and expertise of the various drugs used for treatment of anxiety disorders is fundamental for proper treatment and patient safety.
