In brief: Possibilities
Specifically for the physical symptoms of anxiety (fast heart rate, dry mouth, shaky sweaty hands, etc), propanolol is often used.
However, your individual history must be explored before making any recommendations since anxiety complaints have many possible causes -- both psychiatric and non-psychiatric. Need for a thorough evaluation first.

I agree that each individual's situation must be assessed. I know what I don't agree with for long-term treatment of anxiety - benzodiazapines.

In brief: Anxiety
Often best drugs for anxiety and physical symptoms are ssris or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors such as lexapro, (escitalopram) zoloft, prozac, etc.
