Anxiety disorders are often chronic conditions that must be managed over a lifetime. Specialists at NYU Langone’s Mood Disorders Consultation Service offer ongoing care for people with all types of anxiety disorders.
Our psychiatrists monitor your use of medicine to ensure the dose is correct and the medication is being taken as intended. They recognize that what works for one person with an anxiety disorder may not work for another, and they address any concerns you may have.
People receiving medication for anxiety typically meet with their psychiatrist once per month or bimonthly to discuss any side effects and review how well the medication is working.
Some people with anxiety disorders may benefit by participating in a clinical trial, in which doctors study new and experimental treatments. These research studies are required for U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval of new therapies.
NYU Langone doctors participate in a research program dedicated to investigating new diagnostic methods and medications that could prove helpful in the treatment of people with anxiety disorders. You and your doctor can discuss whether joining a trial could benefit you.
NYU Langone doctors can connect people with anxiety disorders and their families to social workers in the community, who can offer advice on how to cope with daily challenges. Our doctors can also recommend educational programs, wellness resources, and community support groups.
