Anxiety related disorders: Panic Disorder / OCD / Tourette’s
“Overall, the number of Americans on medications used to treat psychological and behavioral disorders has substantially increased since 2001; more than one-in-five adults was on at least one of these medications in 2010, up 22 percent from ten years earlier. Women are far more likely to take a drug to treat a mental health condition than men, with more than a quarter of the adult female population on these drugs in 2010 as compared to 15 percent of men.
Anxiety disorders are the most common psychiatric illnesses affecting children and adults. An estimated 40 million American adults suffer from anxiety disorders.
Medco data shows that women have the highest utilization rate of anti-anxiety medications; in fact, 11 percent of middle-aged women (ages 45-64) were on an anti-anxiety drug treatment in 2010, nearly twice the rate of their male counterparts (5.7 percent). The most notable increase in the use of these medications was seen in children ages 10-19; utilization increased among this age group by almost 50 percent.”
These statistics are beyond alarming! Houston, we have a problem; and, I assure you, that the problem is not a psychotropic medication deficiency syndrome, as the data would suggest.
In their effort to “do something” for these patients, the medical model plies them with medications, some of which may help some of the people, some of the time. All of which have potentially significant adverse effects for both short-term and long-term use. None of which cure anything. Hence, the lifetime scripts.
LENS can work as an adjunct to medications and/or talk therapy, or as a very safe and effective stand-alone treatment.
