Non addictive anxiety meds

I am on Suboxone and my doc is prescribing me an anti-anxiety medicine but I don't know what it is going to be. Of course it won't be anything addictive. I was just wondering if anyone would know what he might put me on. Thanks!

Re: Non addictive anxiety meds

There arenít any anti-anxiety meds that are not addictive. It is either going to be a benzodiazepine (Xanax, Lorazepam, Klonopin, etc.) an SSRI antidepressant or Buspar and they are all addictive.

Since you are probably being treated for an opiate addiction with suboxone, I'd be very careful with any anti-anxiety meds of the benzo class.
