My first panic attack hit from out of the blue. I woke up durning the night hyperventilating. I was 19 and already had two kids. (I have never regretted having them.) I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest. I wanted to run but I didn't know where to. I wanted someone to talk to me but to be quiet. I was a mess and miserable to be around that night. By the time I was 20 I was on valium. That helped but didn't stop all the anxiety or panic attacks. Then I went into a deep depression and the anxiety and panic attacks never went away. I was put on elavil (a AD used a lot back then.) I'm still on it because the Drs. could never find a new one that worked. About a month ago my Dr. asked me to try lexapro and I think it's going to work, but only for the depression. I take xanax 1 mg four times a day now and I have since it came out on the market. I used to try to explain to friends and family what was wrong with me, but most dindn't understand. My parents were great though. Now i'm getting older every day and the anxiety and panic attacks are aging with me. I don't see them going away ever. I hope everyone has a better time controlling it than I did. Take Care...Connie
