Medication for 11 yr old w/GAD

My 11 year old daughter has always suffered from anxiety and was recently diagnosed with GAD. I hate to see her suffer and we've done everything we could possibly think of to help her over the years. Therapy, diet, naturopath, activities...etc. Her counselor suggested we think about putting her on a medication because her anxiety has become so disruptive to her quality of life. Does anybody here have experience putting their child/teen on medication for anxiety? I'm guessing they will prescribe her more like a teen since she is very tall and already matured physically.
