antidepressant meds are most popular for anxiety and are a big help if you can find 1 that works for you, maybe start with generic prozac, its as good as the expensive new ones
valium as needed also helps, it can also help getting off to sleep but it has its limits
I do not believe there is any right or wrong time to look at starting on meds.
If you have consulted with your physician I would lean toward picking the meds and giving them a fair trial. Of course it sometimes takes more than one try to hit on the med that is right for you.
