You can use medication for treatment of the fear of heights, but this is only recommended when the medication is prescribed in combination with exposure therapy. Exposure therapy is the primary treatment for the fear of heights, and other specific phobias. Benzodiazepines can be prescribed during the initial exposure sessions, as benzodiazepines can reduce the phobic anxiety associated with the exposure work. No other medication is helpful for the fear of heights, also known as acrophobia.
