Medication

Some people might be given anxiety medicine, which is generally either antidepression or antianxiety medication.

Psychologists and psychiatrists work and treat in different manners. Psychologists are not able or qualified for medications. But you need to start with the psychologist and they automatically drive you to a psychiatrist when you actually need a medication.

Supporting Techniques

Stress management, support groups, and lifestyle interventions are also helpful for anxiety management.

How to Stop an Anxiety Attack?

Anxiety attacks generally are not sudden and take their time to subside. Some people confuse panic attacks with anxiety attacks, but in either case, you need to manage the symptoms and ride the wave as they cannot be avoided per se.

During a panic attack, it helps to practice deep breathing. Focusing your attention elsewhere, especially by repeating a mantra, is also effective in helping the body ride out the attack.

How to Calm Down After an Anxiety Attack?

Calming down in the face of an anxiety attack requires continuous effort and support. As anxiety tends to last for as long as the situation that triggered it lasts, unlike a panic attack which spans a few minutes, therefore, the care protocol is comprehensive.

Some helpful things to help you calm down after experiencing anxiety attack symptoms include:

  • Avoiding your triggers
  • Breathing exercises
  • Exercising
  • Practicing relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, and mindfulness.
  • Reaching out to loved ones for help and support
