I use one called BusPar quite a bit. The other answerer is correct about Lexapro and Effexor, but most of the SSRI's have indications for anxiety, such as Celexa, Paxil, and Zoloft which are MUCH less expensive. Xanax is a VERY helpful med, but "can" be addictive. So can Klonopin and Ativan. However, it works faster than all other out there. The thing to ask is...do you have an addictive personality or trait? Typically I will use combination therapy of both Xanax, and another medication like Celexa. Since the Celexa takes time to build in the body's system, at least the Xanax can help in the meantime. Then...I have them taper off the Xanax and let the other do the work. Best of luck!
