Speech therapies may be useful in controlling thanatophobia. It is very important to support those who are fearful of death from a social perspective and to prevent them from becoming lonely. Cognitive behavioral therapies, psychotherapies and exposure therapies should be given by professionals who are specialized in this field.
Drugs used in the medical treatment of tanatophobia are anti-depressants and beta-blockers. Although these drugs work well for short-term solutions, they are often insufficient for long-term treatment. Therefore, in the long terma and for the relief of patients, absolute therapy should be added to the treatment.
