It depends: What type of anxiety? Certain situations or general? First line treatments are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) like prozac, zoloft, lexapro (escitalopram). These take 2-3 months for full effect, so sometimes other shorter acting meds are used until the ssri is working. These include benzos like Ativan or klonipin, antihistamines like hydroxyzine. Cognitive behavioral therapy is also very helpf.
