In brief: GAD/SAD

Several, such as ssris such as prozac (fluoxetine).
Talk to your doctor about options.

In brief: Yes!

Benzodiazepines are not the best medicines for gad or sad.
Ssri's are generally much more helpful, and do not induce tolerance. Sometimes benzos may be used temporarily, but best not long-term. Please see a psychiatrist for evaluation and specific recommendations in your own case.
