Anxiety help

I have had anxiety for over 20 years. I am currently taking lexapro and klonopin. My new primary Dr says I should not need the klonopin with it. I was able to slowly taper my dose to 10mg from 20. I feel like it is coming back now again. Is there an alternative to taking meds? I gain 65 pounds each time I take these meds. Paul did it before. I need help

I've been on lexapro for about 6 years and took klonopin for about 8 months. I tapered off the klonopin here VERY recently and I am glad I did. It just wasn't for me I don't believe, the lexapro. Eh it's not working like it once did, but that may be because I had a horrible relapse back in October.
