Nervous Flyer: any of the benzodiazepines will work, they all are anti anxiety agents. There is no best, it is the physicians experience and choice. Also the dose is experience and patient specific. Discuss with your doctor and get the one he/she and you decide on. A second opinion for this is like butts, everyone has one!
