There are some: Presumably you doctor addressed any medical causes before calling it anxiety. There are of course other medication options to try but there are non medicinal options. There are friends and family help, support groups, therapy among a few choices. Your doctor should be able to help direct you in the right direction from non medicinal help to deal with your issues.
