Anxiety: Prozac (fluoxetine) can be used long-term. I try to avoid long -term use of benzodiazapines. What are you doing besides taking medication? Cognitive Behavioral therapy or psychotherapy can be effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night & good nutrition w 5 servings of veggies & 4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, Qi Gong, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing exercises & meditation
