Not all SSRIs cause the same effects. One might work for you if another doesn't. And while there are side effects that are possible, doing something is better than trying to cope with anxiety with no help. Either give the Diazapam a try or call your doctor and discuss your worries about side effects. If you're really concerned about taking drugs, look into seeing a therapist or a counselor.

Personally, none of the side effects I've experienced from medication are as horrible as uncontrolled anxiety. It's a terrifying experience.
