Yes, a GP can prescribe tranquilizers. Ativan 1mg SL is a good product to use, especially when acute anxiety is experienced. Tranquilizers are not for long term treatment. A product like Cilift can be beneficial for the long term treatment of anxiety disorder. It is not a tranquilizer but an anti-depressant.
