Neurotransmitters and Anxiety

Your brain responds directly to neurotransmitters ? little chemicals inside your body that send messages to your brain about how you should feel, think, act, and more. Many neurotransmitters have been linked to anxiety, including:




Even dopamine may play a role in anxiety, or at least have a calming effect on those already living with anxiety symptoms. Interestingly, too much or too little of any hormone may also effect anxiety in different ways. The problem is with balance. If your brain doesn't have enough serotonin, for example, it may cause you to experience anxiety symptoms.

When it comes to neurotransmitter production, the truth is that cause and effect are rarely known. It's often impossible to distinguish between poor neurotransmitter balance as a result of life experience, or poor neurotransmitter balance as a result of genetics. Both can occur in anyone living with anxiety, and in some cases a combination of both may be responsible for anxiety symptoms.
