No: We don't treat anxiety with benzos alone. Actually bezos are used as auxiliary ( helping the main treatment track) medications only. You clearly have developed tolerant and your anxiety is getting worse. Solution is to see a psychiatrist specializing in anxiety so he can do the proper assessment of the situation and put a plan to get you back on track and "regulate" your anxiety.
