    Hello Eugene

     

    This is a great question!  I sure wish I knew the answer to it.  The true answer is...it all depends.  Medication works differently for everyone.  And it depends upon which type of anxiety you are treating.  Are you talking about debilitating panic attacks or generalized anxiety?  Are you talking about phobia fear or PTSD? 

     

    Here is a list of some of the more commonly used anti-anxiety medications.  You may want to research this list to find medications which may meet your criteria.

     

    Feeling "normal and happy" is a very subjective sort of thing.  There are some anti-anxiety meds which work fast...but they also have a host of possible side effects such as feeling drowsy or out of it.  And they may only work for short periods of time. 

     

    My best suggestion is to talk with your doctor about the possibilities.  I am afraid there are no quick fixes for anxiety. 

     

    If we can be of any further assistance please let us know.
