Since i cant be on antidepressants. I would like to know if any antipsychotic helps anxiety and panic disorder ? My current benzo helps anxiety but has worsen my memory. I would like to reduce my benzo dose and maybe add a antipsychotic for anxiety.

Literature suggests seroquel(quetiapine) helps with anxiety. You know any studies of antipsychotics for anxiety.

 I’m 99% certain clozapine has worsened my anxiety. But i fear if i stop clozapine and go to another antipsychotic I might relapse. I was doing fine on 100mg but when I went to 200mg clozapine, it has made my anxiety worse. [1][2]

I take clozapine, paroxetine(not helping for panic), clobazam(helps for panic but worsens memory)

From my personal experience, I actually find antipsychotics to be better for anxiety than antidepressants. Can you tolerate increasing your clozapine to 250-300? I would say  try that before adding another antipsychotic.

No, clozapine is the cause of my anxiety. I was doing fine on 100mg but when i went to 200mg my anxiety became worse.
