In this article in the series of ‘bite sized’ pharmacology, we will look at the pharmacological actions of drugs used in the management of anxiety disorders. This article will outline the categories of anxiety disorder and pharmacological interventions required in these disorders with reference to current guidelines and formulary. It will illustrate the common therapeutic interventions in patients with general anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, post-traumatic stress disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder.

It will then go on to examine the main types of drug used and their pharmacodynamic actions. The management will be considered within the NICE guidance and evidence base. Exercises will be provided to help you apply this knowledge to your prescribing practice.
