In brief: Anxiety meds

That depends. If the anxiety and panic is daily, long-term medications like the ssri and snri class of medications (sorry not enough space to spell it out!) may be the best option.
If the symptoms are sporadic or rare, the benzodiazepines such as xanax, (alprazolam) ativan, valium, and Klonopin may be a better choice. Other options include beta blockers, gabapentin, clonidine, and buspirone.
