You are right to be wary of benzodiazepines, they are really nasty little meds. Maybe o.k. once in a while to have on hand as a last resort. But hey, 30 continuous days worth, just try stopping them cold turkey after 30 days and your anxiety will go sky high. not to mention the insomnia, derealisation,palpitations ,muscle cramps, and possibly even mild psychotic symptoms. Some of these symptoms drag on and on for weeks.

Why don't you ask your doc, for something like
Hydroxyzine ( an antihistamine) No abuse liability, dependence or withdrawal.

Also Serviers Tianeptine is anxiolytic, with minimal withdrawal symptoms. Servier should also soon be marketing a novel melatonergic agonist usefull for anxious depressive states with insomnia, with little or no dependence/withdrawal
( so they say)

I expect my comments here to atract some flak. but really benzos are not the solution for a generalised anxiety disorder, they just make it worse.

Be well.
