In brief: Yes

You can take to decrease the stress or anxiety and to calm down.
For long term use, it's wise to consult with a psychiatrist.

In brief: Yes they are helpful

How long have you been taking cipralex? It sometimes takes about 2-3 weeks before you feel benefits.
If after that you are still worried you might want to ask your prescriber for another type of med such as an anti-anxiety for a short trial period to help with your anxiety. Good luck again.
