Anxiety Treatment in Knoxville
Learn more about Anxiety Treatment in Knoxville here. Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts and physical changes like increased blood pressure. People with anxiety disorders usually have recurring intrusive thoughts or concerns. They may avoid certain situations out of worry. They may also have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling, dizziness or a rapid heartbeat.
Approximately one-third to one-half of patients with generalized Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) do not experience adequate clinical benefit from current traditional treatments. This includes treatment with conventional approaches such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or Venlafaxine and cognitive behavioral therapy. Failure of anxiety relief in patients with SAD is a constant source of substantial morbidity, distress, and decreases in quality of life.
Converging lines of evidence from neuroimaging and pharmacological studies support the importance of glutamate abnormalities in the pathogenesis of SAD. Ketamine is a potent antagonist of the NMDA receptor, a major glutamate receptor in the brain. Results of many clinical studies suggest that ketamine may have significant anti-anxiety effects.
