Anxiety: Actually neither. Both drugs can have side effects of anxiety. Having anxiety is human. Tree stumps do not experience anxiety. Best to get a careful and competent evaluation and not rush to medications for human feelings. Side eff cats can be long lasting and sometimes can be quite serious
