Can Acupuncture help with Anxiety?

I've heard a friend of mine treated herself with Acupuncture for Anxiety and Panic desorder. I'm having those problems right now do to stress. I've never had Acupuncture and feel a bit nervous about it. Will it help, and is it proven to help with anxiety and stress? I'm taking Lexepro right now to help with the anxiety and find it difficult to sleep a whole night w/out ambien. Do you advice Acupuncture? How many sessions? What should I expect. I have an appointment this Saturday morning. Thanks!

Many of my patients that I am currently treating have Anxiety.  Acupuncture and herbs are excellent for this condition.

Hope this Helps
