In brief: Klonopin (clonazepam)

A psychiatrist bases his/her treatment options on thorough assessment, gathering personal & family history & doing mental status exam. Such factors are decisive in choice of treatment that works best 4u.

In brief: Ask directly

As physicians, we care for our patients.
That may result in any of many types of treatment. To offer treatment, we need to perform a careful and thorough evaluation, come to a diagnosis, and then offer a treatment plan. If you have had a clear diagnosis of an anxiety disorder in the past, and Klonopin (clonazepam) or something similar has helped, tell your psychiatrist clearly exactly that.
