Which medication is best for me?

I'm almost positive that I need to go on medication because my anxiety is so bad that I can't go anywhere without a family member. It's been going on for about 3 or 4 months, and has progressively gotten better, but it's still pretty bad.

How do I know which medication is right for me? Do all anxiety medications help with depression too? Depression isn't really an issue so I'd like to take something that doesn't help it. My doctor wants me to go on Paxil but I'm reluctant because I've heard so many horror stories. Maybe Paxil is the best for me, but I'm worried about the side effects including it randomly stopping like people say.

Which medications should I look into? I'd really appreciate any recommendations.
