Anxiolytic and neuroleptic drugs offer a pharmacotherapeutic approach to the treatment of anxiety. A proper diagnosis and a complete understanding of the clinical picture is essential before choosing the class, specific drug, and dosage. Anxiolytics may be used in the neuroses and as adjuncts in other disorders (ex. depression) with a strong anxiety component. Neuroleptics, in very low dosage, are indicated for psychotic anxiety. Dosage, side effects, and duration of treatment must be monitored continuously. Concomitant psychotherapy is advisable.
