In palliative care, the intensity and duration of anxiety as well as its consequences on the patient's daily activities can significantly decrease his quality of life. Anxiety that does not incapacitate the patient to the point of his being unable to communicate or perform his usual activities does not necessarily require drug treatment. The non pharmacological treatments of anxiety are presented in some detail. Prescription of anxiolytic drugs in renal or hepatic failure, as well as when oral intake or venous access are difficult, is briefly discussed.
