If you've been on the same medication for awhile it's very possible that your body has built up a tolerance to it, which is common.  You should address this with your doctor.  You're doing everything right so put the worries of this becoming worse to rest. If one's anxiety has a root cause then once that is addressed via therapy and dealt with we can ease our anxiety and go on.  For many the cause is unknown and that's where the therapy and medication play such an important role.  We have to realize that anxiety is like any other medical condition requiring daily medication(s) to control the symptoms, and that's okay.
We have ups and downs, don't allow any down times to discourage you.  Work closely with your doctor regarding your medication and let him know it doesn't appear to be working......he'll know what to do.  You're doing very well, concentrate on that and not any bumps in the road. You'll get past this and continue to move forward......best wishes.
