In brief: Anxiety medication

Anxiety medications work for symptoms such as restlessness, tremors, sweating, agitation, etc.
, as long as such symptoms are not indicative of another underlying pathology, such as adhd or organic causes such as high BP or high thyroid function. In these cases, treat the underlying cause, not just the symptom.
