Dangers of non sedating antihistamines pubmed
I’ll include the same disclaimer: This will be inferior to reading official suggestions, but you will probably not read official suggestions, and you may read this.All opinions here are my own, they are not endorsed by the hospital I work at, they do not constitute medical advice, I have a known habit of being too intrigued by extremely weird experimental ideas for my own good, and you read this at your own risk.I am still a resident (new doctor) and my knowledge is still very slim compared to more experienced professionals.Overall this is more of a starting point for your own research rather than something I would expect people to have good results following exactly as written.
The effect seems limited to aerobic exercise like walking, running or swimming, preferably for longer than twenty minutes.I’m not going to get too into diagnosis, because generalized anxiety disorder is pretty much exactly what you think it is and a lot (though not all) of this will be applicable for subclinical anxiety as well.You didn’t think you were going to get out of this part, did you?Even the Cochrane Review, famous for never drawing any conclusion other than “more research is needed”, is tentatively willing to say that psychotherapy works for anxiety disorders.
Their study trends towards finding that cognitive behavioral therapy works better than supportive therapy, but is unable to prove significance – apparently more research is needed.
If you can’t find (or don’t want to find) a good therapist, there is preliminary evidence that a good self-help therapy workbook (“bibliotherapy”) is about as good as real therapy – including for anxiety (study, other study, yet another study).
