medication will help decrease your "excessive" anxiety but may not completely eliminate it. Even individuals without anxiety disorders have anxiety as a normal response to life events. The trick is to work with your prescriber and/or a therapist to differentiate symptomatic anxiety from normal anxiety in addition to developing skills to manage your anxiety. Other medications may also be more effective.
