Biomedical therapies are physical or medical treatments such as drug treatment, electroconvulsive treatment (electroshock), or surgery treatment (i.e lobotomy) that are used to cure psychological or emotional conditions. Modern health treatment contains many examples of drug therapies; antidepressant medications, mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, etc. Due to effective drug therapies, electroshock and lobotomies are used significantly less often than in the past.

Biomedical treatments include drug treatment, electroconvulsive treatment, and psychosurgery.

Antianxiety drugs

Antianxiety drugs include a type of medication known as benzodiazepines, or tranquilizers. Two widely used benzodiazepines are known by the brand names Valium and Xanax. The common titles of this medication are diazepam and alprazolam, respectively.


Benzodiazepines reduce the action of the neurological system by improving the action of GABA, the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mind. Benzodiazepines take effect almost right after they are applied, but their effects last just a few hours. Psychiatrists recommend these drugs for anxiety attacks.

Side effects:

Side effects may include sleepiness, light-headedness, dry mouth, depression, vomiting and nausea,  insomnia, diarrhoea, heart palpitations, nasal blockage, and blurry vision. Benzodiazepines can also cause drug dependancy. Tolerance can occur if a person takes these drugs for a long period, and withdrawal symptoms often appear when the medication use is discontinued.

Electroconvulsive Therapy

Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is used mainly for the therapy of serious depressive disorders. Electrodes are placed on the individual’s, over the temporary lobes of the brain. Anaesthetics and muscular relaxants help reduce pain of an individual. Then an electric current is applied for about one second. The affected person has a convulsive seizure and becomes subconscious.
