What's the best anxiety medicine out there?

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to get your thoughts on some of the anxiety medicine out there. Which one, in your opinion, works the best, least side effects. Thanks.

Re: What's the best anxiety medicine out there?

Medications work differently on different people. You may have to try a few to get one that works for you. For me, xanax has been a miracle drug. However, now I'm having a hard time getting any more since doctors don't seem to like to prescribe it. I won't take SSRIs, but you will find many people on this board that do that have had great results with them. Good luck!

I agree, a benzo is great for anxiety, but hard to get .
I'm taking Paxil, only 10mg it's working ok for me, but I also have Librax, which is for my IBS, but it's a spasmodic with just a hint of librium in it, I take it as needed.

I just started on meds and am on the generic form of zoloft and generic form of ativan. So far they seem to be working the way they should. I only take the ativan when needed so I have only had 1.5 pills in over a week so it really isn't needed often, for me anyway.

I was on Lexapro for a few months and it did it's job. I had no side effects other than slight weight gain and drowsiness. Everyone responds to drugs differently. But the Lexapro was too strong for me so they took me off grandually. I took that with a 1/2 of a .05 klonopin at night. I stayed on the klonopin for a while and am now on my 4th day of Celexa.
