pros and cons of meds

hi everyone
i have had an eating disorder for 18 years (now in recover) and am generally an anxious person..was very nervy child, feared death, loss of parents, etc, and still am a "pressured" person with no doubt an overactive CNS!

i am getting lots of people recommend i use anxiety meds, but am hesitant. mainly cos my anxiety kicks me at nights, when i get skipped heartbeats (seems that PRECEDES anxiety) and i fear that taking meds will make me worry about possible side effects ie fear death more?!?!

any comments???
