Types and symptoms of anxiety

There are different types of anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, and phobias among others. Clinical anxiety is more than feeling nervous or fearful, it’s persistent and interferes with your quality of life.

Symptoms of different types of anxiety vary, and can include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Often feeling on edge, irritable, restless, out of control, and/or worried
  • Getting tired easily or struggling to sleep
  • Headaches and unexplained aches and pains
  • Trouble concentrating or focusing
  • A racing or pounding heart rate
  • Sweating
  • Intense anxiety about places, objects, or activities
  • Avoiding places, objects, or activities that cause you anxiety or fear

How anxiety is diagnosed

Anxiety is diagnosed by a medical or mental healthcare professional, typically a psychiatrist or psychologist who will:

  • Ask about your medical and mental health history and current status
  • Ask you about your current symptoms, how intense they are, how long they last, how they affect your daily life, and when they started
  • Use a standardized anxiety assessment tool, such as the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A), the Zung Self-Rating Anxiety Scale (SAS), the Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS-21 and DASS-42), and/or the Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale (GAD-7)

Online anxiety treatment

A combination of medications, counseling, and other interventions is typically recommended to treat anxiety.

Licensed medical professionals on Klarity work with you to create the right in-person or online anxiety treatment plan for you and your needs. Your provider may recommend medications, such as tranquilizers, beta-blockers, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) among others. They may also recommend behavioral counseling or therapy, support groups, or stress management.

If your provider recommends therapy and medication, you’ll see a different provider for each service. And you can find providers for both on Klarity.

Frequently asked questions about online anxiety treatment

What treatments are most common for anxiety?

The most common treatment for anxiety is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or exposure therapy are the most common forms of therapy for anxiety. Stress management and/or support groups may also be recommended.

How do I know if I need medication and/or therapy for anxiety?

A combination of the 2 is considered best for treating anxiety. Working with a provider who can give you a tailored treatment plan based on their assessment of your symptoms is the best way to know what treatments to pursue.

Whether your provider recommends medication alone, therapy alone, or the 2 together, you can find a medical provider to prescribe and manage anxiety medications on Klarity as well as licensed, caring therapists who offer CBT and other therapies.

What is behavioral therapy and how does it help anxiety?

Behavioral therapy involves psychoeducation that teaches people techniques to replace unproductive behaviors with productive ones. Common forms of therapy used for anxiety include:

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) involves working with a therapist to identify negative thoughts or behaviors and respond differently so you can feel less anxiety. 

Exposure therapy can help you confront your fears by exposing yourself to them little by little. Learn about exposure therapy for social anxiety.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) uses mindfulness and other techniques to help you accept difficult thoughts and reduce anxiety.

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MCBT) helps you learn to recognize your thoughts as just thoughts and learn new ways to respond to them more positively. Learn more about mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.

On Klarity, you can find licensed providers who offer caring and affordable behavioral therapy to help you master symptoms of anxiety.

How long does online anxiety treatment usually last?

Your provider may recommend short or long-term treatment with medication depending on how severe your symptoms are and how well you respond. Therapy can take 3 to 4 months, but may last longer and can be repeated if you need additional support later on.

How do I find the right anxiety specialist for treatment?

You want to look for a licensed professional with experience in anxiety diagnosis and treatment. That can include psychiatrists and other medical doctors (MDs), physician assistants/associates (PAs), nurse practitioners (NPs), licensed professional counselors (LPCs), licensed mental health counselors (LMHCs), licensed clinical social workers (LCSWs), and others trained in anxiety medicine or therapy.

Getting recommendations from your primary care doctor, friends and family, online reviews, and interviewing a provider before or during your initial consultations can help you find the right provider for your needs.

Can I get online anxiety treatment? 

You can get an initial diagnosis, medication management, and/or online through a telehealth platform, such as Klarity.

Can I get a prescription for anxiety medication online?

Licensed professionals, including clinicians on Klarity, can see you in a virtual setting and prescribe anxiety medications for you online. Prescriptions can be sent to and filled by your local pharmacy for delivery or pick up or an online pharmacy that delivers to your home.

Does insurance cover online anxiety treatment?

Many insurance plans cover in-person and online anxiety treatment, including consultations, medications, and therapy. Check with your insurance provider to understand your coverage and any out-of-pocket costs.
