What is the best medicine for stress and anxiety?

Are there any medications that are helpful? 

Sometimes medications may be useful in the short term to relieve stress and induce relaxation by lowering heart rate and reducing anxiety and depression. However, the end goal is to leam to relax and cope with stress on your own. Medications should be used onlywhen other relaxation methods, such as yoga, have not been successful and you may still be troubled by sleep disturbances, overwhelming feelings of unhappiness or hopelessness, or difficulty in performing your daily activities. It is then important to consult your physician, who may prescribe specific antidepressant or antianxiety drugs. Betablockers are commonly used in people after a heart attack to reduce pulse rate and, to a lesser extent, alleviate anxiety.
