[FONT="Lucida Sans Unicode"]I have suffered with severe and constant anxiety and panic attacks since May 2006.At that time I was taking Seriquel. I tried paxil & adivan for 1-2 weeks but those did not work for me at all! I believe it was the adivan. Anyway… It all started out with shortness of breath...I thought I had asthma. I was told oh it is "just anxiety". I started to feel tightness in my chest, insomnia for 2-3 days at a time, desensitized, numbness thought out my whole body, couldn’t each, woke up in the middle of the night soaking wet with sweat. It got really bad in July when admitted myself to the Crisis Center where there I choose to attended a partial hospital program. Which was really great. I learned A LOT more about my condition. I have been with the same Dr. Since July and am really getting frustrated. She started me out on Lexapro 10 mg after a few months up to 20 mg stating we may have to give this med more time to work and just 3 days ago she increased my Lexapro prescription to 30mg! I am wondering if this is too high?? This has been going on for the past 6 months. For the past 2 days I can hardly get out of bed in the morning I feel comfortably numb and very depressed. I told her the lexapro may not be working for me and asked to switch to something else. I also told her I feel like I have been living off of the Zanax and kolonapin. I had been taking the Zanax every 4-5 hours for 5-6 months and am worried I am addicted. I get very bad headaches and get shaky where my hands really tremble. I also take 0.5 mg of Klonazapam at bedtime. :confused: Any advice would be helpful! I am really considering asking for a referral to a different Dr. I do start Therapy in 2 weeks which may be helpful.:confused:
