he increased complexity of our society may be linked with the increase number of individuals suffering from anxiety, as each change requires an adaptation, and resources for adaptation are not always available. For example, many people today have to make changes in their career and continue their education during their lifespan, while this wasn't the case 40 years ago.
Medication is not always the best solution in treating anxiety, as most of these drugs can manifest trough negative secondary effects, especially in developing bodies. Another disadvantage of anxiety drugs is that its effects do not last for a long period of time, for which psychotherapy is recommended for obtaining longer term effects. Individuals suffering from anxiety can only do psychotherapy, or can do psychotherapy and take anxiety drugs at the same time, depending on the severity of the symptoms.
