My own experience with sleep paralysis, which happens to me maybe every few weeks or months, is that the harder you struggle against it, the harder it is to wake up and the more anxious and paranoid you become. I've found that when you experience the paralysis, if instead of fighting you give in and relax (I know, it's hard to do because you're so frightened) you will wake up much quicker and it will be less traumatic.
As far as the anxiety, you could try some sleep aids such as Trazadone, Elavil, Remeron, etc. or if you experience anxiety during the day, which I do, I've found that Klonopin (gen. Clonazapem) has worked very well for me.
