Psychotropics in the Management of Psychosomatic and Somatogenic Anxiety
The term “psychosomatic” denotes a sequence whereby psychological events are followed or are accompanied by physical events. Anxiety is invariably a psychosomatic phenomenon denoting the essential psychosomatic unity of the organism. The physical concomitants of anxiety include changes in the voluntary muscular system, the pseudomotor system and autonomic nervous control of the functions of the various organs and systems, including respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal and genito-urinary. These bodily concomitants are the basis of many of the symptoms complained of by patients with anxiety states.
