Beta Blockers work against the physical signs of anxiety (racing heart, trembling, sweating). Benzos work against the anxiety itself fast and effectively.

Beta blockers block adrenalin so your heart doesn't race, you don't start sweating, etc. Supposedly classical musicians take them so they don't get nervous during performances. This is all happening in your body, benzos work inside your brain and reduce brain activity, more in some places than others. Haven't taken either, wouldn't mind having some beta blockers to carry around with me when I have to deal with stuff.
