Abstract

The high prevalence of anxiety disorders, along with the high rate of associated comorbidity, leads to significant financial burden and human suffering, making early detection and proper intervention a clinical priority for these conditions. Despite advances in the understanding and treatment of anxiety disorders, a number of factors diminish the likelihood that people with anxiety will benefit from these advances. The authors discuss current issues relating to the treatment of anxiety disorders. This review highlights the need for recognition of comorbid conditions, the importance of reducing the high rates of partial treatment response, the importance of being aware of the common utilization of alternative treatment interventions, and the need to recognize and treat medication-induced sexual dysfunction.
