The Debilitating Effects of Anxiety
Human beings deal with varying levels of anxiety at different times throughout their life. Unfortunately, the symptoms can become crippling under certain circumstances. Anxiety disorders (of which there are several) are the most common mental illnesses in this country. In fact, experts estimate that about 40 million Americans live with some form of anxiety.
The symptoms of this condition can be drastically different from case to case. Some people may only experience a mild level of anxiety while others may be much more severe.
In general, the following could all indicate anxiety to some degree:
- Difficulty focusing on any task
- Distracted quite easily
- Feeling unusually on edge
- Muscle tension
- Excessive sweating
- Shortness of breath
- Insomnia and other sleep-related issues

Why Are Research Volunteers Needed?
While there are a wide range of treatments available for this type of mental illness, experts say that only 1 in every 3 people with anxiety ever seek treatment. Clinical trials like the ones being conducted by Avail Clinical Research in Florida are providing psychologists with a better idea of how these conditions develop and what types of treatments will be most effective.
Each person that participates in a clinical trial is helping more than they may ever know. Most modern therapies that are available for anxiety disorders wouldn't have been possible unless people had been willing to volunteer. Plus, qualified applicants may receive compensation for their time and any travel-related expenses that are incurred.
Additional benefits for participants may include:
- Gaining access to premium medical care free-of-charge
- Receiving medical treatment without needing to have health insurance
- Gaining the knowledge that they are taking a more direct role in their health care
Study Qualification and Informed Consent
Those who are interested in participating in a clinical trial need to understand that each one has its own set of enrollment criteria. This is an essential aspect that helps to ensure the principal investigators and their research teams are obtaining the most accurate data during the study. Adults who apply for enrollment at Avail's clinic will be screened by one of their friendly and experienced principal investigators.
The other thing that should be understood before enrolling in a clinical trial is the purpose of the informed consent form (http://www.availclinical.com/clinical-study/informed-consent/). Each applicant must sign this form before they can participate in any way. It signifies that the research team has taken the time to inform each applicant about what their participation will entail (both the benefits and the risks). Volunteers also should know that they maintain the right to withdraw from a clinical trial at any point.
