There are a lot of options for anxiety. Benzodiazepines, which include oxazepam, are generally not the first line for treatment. They are only temporarily effective. Longer term treatments such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or medications such as SSRI's (prozac, paxil, lexapro,etc) can be more helpful.
