Many people find long-term relief from anxiety symptoms with fluoxetine (Prozac) alone. It's one of the five most commonly prescribed antidepressant/anxiolytic.
This is from Drugs.com:
"Fluoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant. Fluoxetine inhibits the uptake of serotonin by a nerve cells (neurons) and helps people with depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms."
"Fluoxetine is a prescription medicine used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa (an eating disorder), obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)."
Not everyone will respond to the medication they but it's certainly worth trying fluoxetine.
