I think you need to go to someone who specializes in anxiety disorders. GAD is not my forte. Sometimes an SSRI does the trick. I don't know anyone for whom Lyica or Neurontin has produced a stable improvement indefinitely, but my observations are little better than worthless.

I'm afraid to give anyone recommendations for an addictive substance. However, I suspect that Xanax (alprazolam) is probably the best among the benzodiazepines. However, it is the most addictive. It might be the answer for you, though. If Xanax washes away your anxiety, and you don't build up a tolerance for it that requires constant dosage escalation, who cares about addiction if it works? You will likely have to take something for the rest of your life, anyway. There are extended-release preparations.
