Summaries for Generalized Anxiety Disorder

PubMed Health : 62 About generalized anxiety disorder: Everyone feels frightened or very scared every once in a while. In dangerous situations, for instance on the highway, fear can help to protect you. It puts the body in a state of readiness so that it can react to threats quickly. Worries and anxiety about the future, your job or family might also help to guard against danger. For example, by keeping you from making rash decisions that could lead to difficult situations. But if these sorts of fears become overwhelming, they can be very distressing. Some people end up constantly worrying about practically everything. If fears and anxiety overshadow everything else and don’t go away, the person may have developed generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). People with generalized anxiety disorder usually realize that their fears are exaggerated, but they aren’t able to control them. Although it’s difficult to get out of this state, there are treatments that can help.

MalaCards based summary : Generalized Anxiety Disorder, also known as anxiety generalized, is related to depression and neurotic disorder. An important gene associated with Generalized Anxiety Disorder is HTR1A (5-Hydroxytryptamine Receptor 1A), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Peptide ligand-binding receptors and cAMP signaling pathway. The drugs Valproic acid and Eszopiclone have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, heart and testes, and related phenotypes are Decreased viability and Decreased viability

Disease Ontology : 12 An anxiety disorder that is characterized by long-lasting anxiety that is not focused on any one object or situation.

KEGG : 36 Generalized anxiety disorder is a persistent and common mental disorder. This disorder is twice as common in women than it is in men. The symptoms include generalised and persistent excessive anxiety and a combination of various psychological and somatic complaints, such as threat, restlessness, irritability, sleep disturbance, tension, palpitations, dry mouth, and sweating. The symptoms overlap greatly with those of other mental disorders and we could regard the disorder as part of a spectrum of mood and related disorders rather than an independent disorder. Generalized anxiety disorder has a relapsing course, and intervention rarely results in complete resolution of symptoms. But in the short term and medium term, effective treatments include psychological therapies, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, and pharmacological treatments, mainly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).
