Sorry to hear you are having a tough time at the moment finding the right medication can take time.
GP's usually will prescribe an SSRI as a first option such as Zoloft or Lexapro and if the patient has tried a few of these without success then an SNRI such as Cymbalta and Effexor will be prescribed.
I have been on Lexapro and Cymbalta and imo the Lexapro worked the best and did not cause any side effects. The Cymbalta was good but it was really difficult to stop and gave me a lot of side effects.
I try not to worry about the future -- so I take each day just one anxiety attack at a time.
