Which is the best medication for really bad anxiety other than benzodiazapines? I am already on risperidone, celexa and depakote. I have also tried Buspar (buspirone) with no relief.

Which is the best medication for really bad anxiety other than benzodiazapines? I am already on risperidone, celexa and depakote. I have also tried Buspar (buspirone) with no relief.

Even bad anxiety can respond to counseling (like cognitive behavioral therapy), meditation, exercise, emotional freedom technique, homeopathy, supplements like magnesium, b complex, l-theanine & 5-htp & herbs like holy basil & ashwagandha. Consult a holistic doc! ...Read more
