Hello and welcome to the forum!
We are glad that you've joined us, though sorry it is due to continuing challenges with anxiety. However, it is great that you are reaching out and seeking the help that you need in order to feel your best again...so well done!
What Rx were you previously using? You may be able to reinstate your previous med (at the start up dosage of course) or an alternative within the same family with good results.
Basically you have your daily meds, A/D's such as SSRI's, SNRI's, Atypical A/D's or TCA's as well as Beta Blockers for regular/ongoing management...
...and then rescue medications such as benzodiazepines or an off label use of an antihistimine on an as needed/PRN use.
Many people find the daily use of an SSRI, along with a PRN (resuce) benzo for attacks, to be a winning combination.
You can discuss your options with your doctor, and together come up with a plan that seems best suited for your needs.
Be sure to also see our Resources at the top of the main forum page here for great self help material to either get started with, or to add to your existing 'tool box'. Practicing coping skills daily will really help you to get the most out of your program.
Post with us anytime as well if you find it helpful. We understand, care and support it key!
