Just as there are many kinds of anxiety disorders, there are also many different types of anti-anxiety medications that are used to treat them. By far the most commonly prescribed anxiety treatments belong to the benzodiazepine family of medicines.

Benzodiazepines such as alprazolam (Xanax) and lorazepam (Ativan) have been used to treat anxiety and panic attacks since the 1960’s. Although these anxiety treatments are usually prescribed for short-term use (2-4 weeks), they have been proven to be effective at helping millions of anxiety sufferers around the world.

In recent years, newer options became available that are sometimes recommended as a long-term anxiety treatments like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressants such as fluoxetine (Prozac).

These drugs are not cures, and while they can provide temporary relief, they also come with side effects and safety concerns. A recent analysis reported in JAMA Psychiatry found that the effectiveness of SSRIs in treating anxiety has been overestimated, and in some cases is no better than a placebo.
