In brief: If there's an

Anxiety disorder then medications like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors or Buspar (buspirone) can be helpful.
I don't usually recommend medication if the only issue is stress. Lifestyle changes can be helpful for both. Talking therapy ranks really high. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be quite effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hours of sleep per night ; good nutrition with 5 servings of veggies ;.

& 4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, Qi Gong, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing exercises & meditation. Don't isolate - spend time with friends and stay active.

In brief: Anxiety

There are medications you can ask your doctor about but you should try a course of psychotherapy before using medication as anxiety is often treated quite successfully with therapy.
