You've probably accrued some tolerance, which would mean you need to up your dose a little.

Drinking will help anxiety, as alcohol agonizes GABA receptors, plus it is an NMDA antagonist. Unfortunately, alcohol is not the best medicine, as its side effects can be devastating.

The best way to treat anxiety is with an SSRI or other antidepressant. ADs treat the root of the problem, where as benzodiazapines throw a blanket over the fire.
