The most common types of disturbances in emotional response are increased excitability and emotional lability. Increased excitability manifests itself as a tendency to violent reactions, anger, aggression on insignificant occasions.

Mood disorders – hypertension, hypothyroidism, anxiety, dysphoria, euphoria – refer to stable emotional disorders.
By hypertension we mean an increased mood with an influx of forces, a reassessment of one’s capabilities, it is characteristic of the manic syndrome. Hypotonia, or low mood, characterized by desperate experiences with attention to negative events, is a sign of a depressive syndrome. Anxiety is an experience of inner anxiety, the expectation of unhappiness, which can be accompanied by nervous movements, vegetative reactions and develop into panic. Dysphoria is expressed in a drearily malicious mood, discontent with oneself and with the environment, often accompanied by aggression and even suicidal attempts. Emotional disorders are more often noted with neuroses, menopause, traumatic and infectious brain lesions, chronic somatic diseases, including endocrine, schizophrenia, manic-depressive psychosis. It should be remembered that patients with emotional disorders (hypotony, dysphoria) can accumulate prescribed medications to use for suicide purposes.
In addition to emotional disorders, patients often turn to pharmacies with complaints such as anxiety and anxiety, irritability, a feeling of inner tension, and sleep disturbances. The pace of modern life, the rapid development of information technology, often an unfavorable social situation have a strong impact on the human nervous system, its mental health.

According to the WHO, at least 10-35% of the inhabitants of different countries are under stress. Stress inevitably leads to a decrease in working capacity, a deterioration in the quality of life, social disadaptation. One of the characteristic manifestations of the impact of stress on a person is unreasonable anxiety, excitement, anxiety – an obsessive sense of expectation of something unpleasant, uncertain threat, impending danger. Unlike fear, anxiety does not have a certain source; it is “fear of what is unknown”. Psychologists distinguish anxiety as a condition and anxiety as a personality trait.
If you suffer from anxiety, you might think that medication is the only way out. However, based on recent research from the British National Institute of Health and the quality of medical care, doctors are not recommended to prescribe medications to patients with symptoms of excessive anxiety immediately.
In addition to these drugs, vitamin and mineral complexes, enzyme, metabolic adaptogenic and vascular preparations can be prescribed. They are aimed not so much at fighting the emergence of panic attacks, but as general strengthening of the body and increasing its protective mechanisms.
