Cognitive behaviour Therapy and supportive therapy and relaxation training will be more helpful for generalised anxiety. Most experience a marked lessening of anxiety when given opportunities to discuss their difficulties.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Numerous antidepressants are available that are effective for GAD. Anti- anxiety medicines such as buspirone are also effective for GAD. Both these groups are not addictive. There is no one medicine that is considered best. Different ones work well for different people. Considering the severity, dose and side effect profile, the medicine needs to be individualized to each patient. Take care!
