Which is the most effective medication for anxiety / panic attacks which can be taken on a daily basis for a long period of time? I don't want xanax (alprazolam).

In brief: Options

I would discuss your options with your prescribing provider. I normally start out with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibtor. I often augment this with a mild anxiolytic like buspar (buspirone).
Take care.
