D. None of the above
Stop guessing. I've already told you I disagreed with B and D. Didn't you read that?
If you're going to ask for help, please at least take the time to remember the answers and read the recommended web sites.
I believe it's C.. I am probably wrong.. But I have bad anxiety and they've used both on me.
Teachers are there to help, not provide answers to kids. She's handing them the necessary tools to get the answer and they are still choosing to be lazy and guess. Stop judging a teacher for being impatient. Blame a parent for not disciplining their child
So what is it??
Medication does not cure anxiety disorders but often relieves symptoms. Medication can only be prescribed by a medical doctor (such as a psychiatrist or a primary care provider), but a few states allow psychologists to prescribe psychiatric medications.
Medications are sometimes used as the initial treatment of an anxiety disorder, or are used only if there is insufficient response to a course of psychotherapy. In research studies, it is common for patients treated with a combination of psychotherapy and medication to have better outcomes than those treated with only one or the other.
The most common classes of medications used to combat anxiety disorders are antidepressants, anti-anxiety drugs, and beta-blockers (visit Mental Health Medications). Be aware that some medications are effective only if they are taken regularly and that symptoms may recur if the medication is stopped.
Psychotherapy or “talk therapy” can help people with anxiety disorders. To be effective, psychotherapy must be directed at the person’s specific anxieties and tailored to his or her needs. A typical “side effect” of psychotherapy is temporary discomfort involved with thinking about confronting feared situations.
