I think you should ask yourself some important questions before deciding anything. Like: Has the quality of your life been irreversably effected? Do you feel like you cannot go on like this, do you often think of suicide or hurting yourself?

Going to a professional is not a bad idea, they could help you sort out your feelings. But, if you can help yourself without going on medication, like trying cognitive behavioural therapy and psychotherapy (analyzing the source of your anxieties, etc.) its a better route. Medication is usually prescribed for those who cannot be treated with just therapy. However, please be careful there are alot of pill pushers out there who prescribe meds like aspirin. Starting medication can be a long road, side effects, trying to find the right one, for some it takes over seven tries to find the right one. It is definately not fun. The best advice I can offer you is that you should just be cautious and well informed before deciding to do anything. Good Luck.
