Thank you for your question and welcome to AnxietyConnection.com.
I am not a medical professional and would not be able to give you medical advice.
Many medications for anxiety are meant to be used on a short-term basis and should not be taken as a long-term solution. Medications can help to aid in other treatments, such as cognitive behavioral therapy.
It is important to keep track of anxiety symptoms on a daily basis. Keeping a log of what medication was taken, what food and drink was consumed and the level of anxiety can help when working with a doctor to determine if treatment has been effective.
In addition, lifestyle changes can help to reduce symptoms of anxiety. For example, daily exercise, meditation and yoga have been found to lessen anxiety symptoms.
