Anxiety board


I suffer from a pretty high level of anxiety. Somebody who doesn't know me told me recently that my anxiety is clearly noticeable. My kids have also picked up on my anxiety and they act very anxious. I have been fighting against taking medication because the medication I've tried in the past hasn't helped me. Instead it made me very agitated and almost even more anxious.
I've tried remeron, anafranil, imipramine, prozac and paxil. None of the above has helped although I did take it for a few months before I gave up. The only thing that is reducing my anxiety is valium. I do understand though that I can't take valium every day.
Which other medication works for anxiety? Which one doesn't make you agitated?
I do sleep well and don't have any sleeping problems.
