Thanks for your query. The treatment for an anxiety disorder includes:
1. Anti-anxiety medication like SSRIs
2. Psychotherapy techniques like systemic desensitisation or exposure and response prevention
Yoga, meditation and breathing relaxation techniques are likely to be beneficial. Both inderal and clonotril are only for temporary symptom relief. Undertake a psychiatric evaluation as early as possible to plan appropriate management and also to rule out various anxiety disorders. Wish you good health.

Welcome to Health Care Magic

Inderal or propranolol 10 mg, clonazepam are good medicines for episodic control of anxiety. But as you have mentioned that you suffered severe anxiety and you took medicines for about a month and then stopped with consultation of doctor. As you have been facing anxiety again I would advise you to visit a psychiatrist and take opinion about medicines.
Various medicines like SSRI, SNRI are available for treatment of anxiety. Don't take medicines by your own.
