Personally, I take Prozac, and it doesn't get rid of anxiety or depression in any way. What it does (for me) is just take the edge off. I still have anxiety and depression but it prevents me from doing anything serious or going completely insane from my anxiety (as much as I feel like it) or anything like that. The thing that I've taken that's worked better is some form of beta-blocker (I can't remember the name), which basically you take before going into an anxiety provoking situation (for me, school) and it brings my anxiety down from 10 to a 7. The problem with them is that I don't think they work for everybody, and can have side effects. You also can't take certain medicines or do certain things when you take them. I'm no doctor, so you should consult one before you do anything. But if it's bad enough, you should try almost anything you can.
