Hi wojo-
Have you tried Buspar. It is a hit and miss med. It works for some and not for others. It can take 4 weeks to become effective. It is not a benzodiazepine. It is a shame but there is not much out there for anxiety disorders besides SSRI's/SNRI's and benzos.
Hope you find something that will work for you.

PS- I forgot that there is also Tricyclic antidepressants.

Thanks Janie. Unfortunately, I did try buspar to no avail. It's been 15 years and it's almost hopeless because nothing works! I'm Stuck taking benzos and being tired all the time. I will keep trying tho!
