What is Clinical Anxiety?
Occasional feelings of anxiety are a normal part of life. Some people experience higher levels of anxiety before a job interview or a significant life event. For most people, these feelings are temporary and resolve on their own. For others, the feeling of anxiety is constant and disruptive to their daily life.
Clinical anxiety, or generalized anxiety disorder, is characterized by excessive anxiety or worry that persists for at least six months. People with an anxiety disorder may avoid people and situations that trigger their anxious thought patterns. Generalized anxiety disorder symptoms include feeling restless or irritable, muscle tension, difficulty concentrating or sleeping, excessive worrying, and depression.

How Ketamine Can Help With Anxiety
“Ketamine can play an important role in the treatment of anxiety disorders,” according to Prakash Masand, MD, co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Centers of Psychiatric Excellence (COPE).
There are many different types of treatments available for anxiety disorders. These include everything from psychotherapy to SSRI’s to even acupuncture, herbs, and supplements. For many patients, these treatments are not effective in reducing their symptoms.
