Treatment For Anxiety Disorder

Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors (MAOIs)
MAOIs are recommended when other antidepressants do not work or when the patient cannot put up with any other antidepressant. MAOIs work by balancing certain neurochemicals and reduce the symptoms of anxiety disorders. MAOIs are available in the market under the brand name Marplan.

Sertraline is an antidepressant which is often used in combination with a cognitive behavioral therapy to treat anxiety disorders in kids. Sertraline is available under the brand name Zoloft.
