Have you ever tried Buspar? If so, what was the dosage and how many weeks did you allow it to work for?

What about Paxil and Effexor?

Maybe you can find something interesting here:

I don't really care for the drug that much, but Gabitril (tiagabine) is used for anxiety and insomnia sometimes. Results are variable. I'm sure that you know that it is a GABA reuptake inhibitor. I haven't yet seen any success stories here, but I don't think many doctors think to use Gabitril.

I think Linkadge would be in a good position to speculate what mechanisms would yield anxiolysis.
