Un estudio fármaco-epidemiológico muestra alto potencial para la homeopatía en el manejo de la ansiedad desde atención primaria

Epidemiology of anxiety disorders and drug prescription in a primary care setting shows high potential for homeopathy

This study aimed to determine the clinical-epidemiological profile of patients suffering from Anxiety Disorder (AD) and to know the true of their management in the Primary Care setting as well as the impact of the different treatments on their short-term evolution.

An epidemiological survey was completed by 15 investigators in the Primary Care setting who had declared to be familiarized with homeopathic drugs, with a total of 110 recruited patients followed in three scheduled visits during 60 days of follow-up.

AD affects women more frequently than men and prevalence rates are high in midlife and in subjects with a first degree family history of AD. Psychological comorbidities among these disorders are frequent and increase with time, being generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder the main reasons for consultation in the Primary care setting.

The most frequently used pharmacological treatment is the combination of SSRI + Benzodiazepines + SPC. A quarter of the patients used other adjuvant treatments and half of them used other therapies.

Overall clinical evolution was favourable for the patients under any of the treatments. SPC showed an excellent adherence to treatment due to a good safety profile and they have presented a favourable clinical evolution as a monotherapy or in

combination, so Sedatif-PC could be an interesting treatment option for the patients with anxiety disorders.
