I would ask about a medication called Vistaril. It is an antihistimine similar to benedryl, but it has been fda approved for gad. I have sad, but they had no issues putting me on it. It is a prn, so you don't have to worry about taking your pills everyday on time. It is very mild, non-addictive and doesn't make me feel drugged, just more relaxed.
(just a suggestion, your reaction to it could be different, but from what I have read. A lot of people have good reactions to it.) sorry this is so long, just in a talkative mood
P.s. I don't claim any of this as fact outside my own experience. You may want to google it yourself.
