The medication used most often for anxiety
. This is a non-specific beta-blocker (not targeted just for
the heart muscle). I'm not too sure if this is a good route for GAD (again, it should be your MD's call). Generally, it is used for things like performance anxiety. In other words, if you are anxious because of symptoms (racing heart and S.O.B.) these might be o.k. But, if your anxiety is mental in etiology (going crazy or getting sick), the beta-blocker might not be the best.
