Patients with anxiety disorders usually undergo many diagnostic tests and interventions turning out negative on all levels of the health system. The general practitioner has a significant role in diagnosing and assessing anxiety disorders, based on a focused history, tests for differential diagnosis and questionnaire screening tools. The generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) is highly prevalent in primary care, appr. 8-10%, 2-4 times frequent in women. Treat-ment is complex, evidence-based methods are available as certain lifestyle modifications, psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy. A regular consultation with a psychiatrist colleague can improve the chronic care of patients with anxiety disorders.
