How can a depression medicine work for anxiety?

Serotonin receptors: "antidepressants" are often mistaken to work for depression only. Fda approved depression medications are ssris/snris (selective serotonin/norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors). Serotonin modulation has a role in treating both depression and anxiety disorders.
