In brief: See below
Are you anxious about every day stuff or particular events?Generally, it's good to know what makes you anxious.
Practice relaxation, mediation, guided imagery (you can google it); keep a diary of the events when you happen to be anxious -- what happened (the event), thoughts you had; things you've done to decrease anxiety; how you body responded (where did it feel in your body).

In brief: Therapy first
I know that we live in a fast fix society and insurance companies do not like to pay for anything that they feel never ends.
The reality is that in the long run therapy is more effective than medications and saved money for the insurance companies. Studies by the rand corporation and other independent research companies support these findings.

In brief: Medication
It used to be the case that patients try to treat without medication first, sometimes for years.
More recently, it is recognized that medication used in conjunction can be helpful. Of course, some patients get dramatic relief from medication alone and decide to not invest in psychotherapy. Similar to depression, the more economical approach is to start with medication, but may not be best.
