What are the strongest anti-anxiety meds?

I was prescribed 1 mg a day of clonazepam recently. It wasn't strong enough so the doc prescribed 2 mgs. Still not strong enough. Also made me dizzy. I was wondering...what are the strongest anti anxiety medications on the market? I need something powerful because I've got it bad

The only things that have helped a bit with my severe anxiety is Seroquel and Ativan. Buspar helped a little as well.

Re: What are the strongest anti-anxiety meds?

The strongest types of anxiety medications are going to be certain SSRI antidepressants. If Clonazepam (Klonopin) at 2 mgs daily isnít strong enough, you should probably try something else. If you exceed 2 mgs of Clonazepam daily (for very long) you are going to have some addiction and withdrawal issues to deal with. I would talk to your doctor about trying an antidepressant.

If you have tried the anxiety meds....xanax, ativan, klonopin, and valium....then an AD may be the way to go....

I hope you get some help....
