I'll play. Alprazolam (generic name for Xanax); Ativan (brand version of Lorazepam). I'm sure others with weigh in.

Take care for now.

Besides the two most common which Rathmullan mentioned:
Atenolol (Tenormin) off label for situational/performance anxiety. It's actually a hypertensive but occasionally prescribed to control the symptoms of anxiety such as racing heartbeat and palpitations.
