 +====== Substance / Medication-Induced Anxiety Disorder ======
 +===== Primer =====
 +**Substance/​medication-induced anxiety disorder** is diagnosed after an individual uses a substance (e.g., a drug of abuse, a medication, or a toxin exposure) that leads to prominent symptoms of panic or anxiety.
 +===== Diagnostic Criteria =====
 +== Criterion A ==
 +Panic attacks or anxiety is predominant in the clinical picture.
 +== Criterion B ==
 +There is evidence from the history, physical examination,​ or laboratory findings of both (1) and (2):
 +  - The symptoms in Criterion A developed during or soon after substance intoxication or withdrawal or after exposure to a medication
 +  - The involved substance/​medication is capable of producing the symptoms in Criterion A
 +== Criterion C ==
 +The disturbance is not better explained by an anxiety disorder that is not substance/ medication-induced. Such evidence of an independent anxiety disorder could include the following:
 +  * The symptoms precede the onset of the substance/​medication use; the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time (e.g., about ''​1''​ month) after the cessation of acute withdrawal or severe intoxication:​ or there is other evidence suggesting the existence of an independent non-substance/​medication-induced anxiety disorder (e.g., a history of recurrent non-substance/​medication-related episodes).
 +== Criterion D ==
 +The disturbance does not occur exclusively during the course of a delirium.
 +== Criterion E ==
 +The disturbance causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational,​ or other important areas of functioning.
