are ssri's worth it?

I am a 27 year old female with had. I have been struggling with driving anxiety for several months. I am on 30mg buspar.. however not sure if its working much. I'm also in therapy. I am considering going on an ssri. I have had a bad experience with zoloft before... my Dr didn't have me titrate up and the beginning anxiety was horrible (caused panic attack that started all of the d driving anxiety). I was only on it 5 days.

I want to know if the benefits are worth the side effects?
Is it really hard to come off after feeling better?
... I want to start having children in the next few years.
