Fear of Flying Prescriptions

Posted by: sarahstenson - Posted on:

We are often asked to prescribe sedative drugs, such as diazepam, for fear of flying. We have recently agreed a practice policy that we will no longer prescribe these drugs for fear of flying. We recognise that fear of flying can be frightening and we don’t underestimate the impact it can have. We recommend tackling this properly and hopefully permanently, by using self-help resources or courses offered by the airlines. we have listed a number of these below or there are also some free online courses:
