Treatment efficacy: generalized anxiety disorder

The NHS Centre for Reviews and Dissemination’s meta-analysis of the comparative efficacy of treatments for generalized anxiety disorder (2002e) found that both CBT and pharmacotherapy (predominantly drugs classed as benzodiazepines) are ‘effective treatments for GAD and that both yielded relatively large effect sizes on measures of anxiety severity at posttreatment’. Additionally, there was some evidence suggesting that CBT was ‘better at eliminating the symptoms of depression that are often seen in GAD’.
