Our expert says:
Always remember, no medicine ( if properly used ) guarantees you won't feel anxious in situations where anxiety is normal and appropriate - and the effect would be rather unpleasant if they did.
And NO medicine is a complete treatment for GAD or other versions of anxiety. Counselling and other ways to help you learn how to avoid avoidable stresses and to cope better with those that do arise, is a good idea, as well.
In the situation you describe, unless meds anaesthetized you, they alone won't change your motherly habit of worrying about daughters who are more than old enough to take care of themselves, and who should worry more about themselves than you do.
I would strongly recommend that you seek ways to see a counsellor for CBT-type counselling to help you reduce the amount of needless and fruitless anxiety you feel, and to handle it better when it does arise.
