I tried (for a very short time) Lexapro and after that didn't work out,Prozac. The prozac seemed to be working but after a couple weeks my panic attacks increased in incidence/severity and I was having heart palpitations bad enough to land me in the ER. I have heart disease and the elevated BP & heart rate weren't making things any easier.
My doctor decided that I may be extra sensitive to the SSRIs and suggested Buspar (Buspirone HCL) and though I haven't been on it long it seems to be doing the trick. I've just increased the daily dosage from 10 to 15 mgs a few days ago and have had virtually no side effects. While the changes haven't been flash-bang! dramatic I've noticed that I'm calm plus I've cut my Ativan dosages in half except when I skip it completely and often don't need Ambien to sleep. While it may not be the answer,as ljenner831 suggested you might ask your Dr. about it.
Best wishes and take it slow kicking the Xanax!
