SSRIs have been used as an effective treatment for depression for many years, but have recently become more widely used in the treatment of many other disorders including post traumatic stress, generalised anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. This second edition will provide a timely update on the use of SSRIs in anxiety as their application in this area becomes more common and drug companies seek more widespread uses to maintain sales as SSRIs begin to loose basic patent protection.
