Hello! My name is Lindsay and have anxiety and panic disorders. I've been on Zoloft, Celexa, and Paxil for the past years (obviously not all at once). I went to a specialist for anxiety two weeks ago for the first time and since I have severe panic attacks she bumped my dosage of zoloft to 150mg. It's the highest I've had. She also subscriped me .25mg of Klonopin to take 3 times a day for two weeks and I meet back with her next week to see how I'm doing. I also have Xanax which I take .5mg only if I really need it! Well, I've been noticing that Klonopin is helping but since those are the lowest doses it doesn't last the whole day. I took five .25mg Klonopin today because it was one of those stressful days. I called my specialist and left a voicemail asking if it was okay that I took more than 3 which she instructed. Haven't heard back from her yet because I think she's out of the office but I'm sure that I'll be fine.. I hope!

Basically I just would like to find a friend who is going through the exact same thing so we can help each other. I don't know anyone who has panic attacks and is generally an anxious person. It just would be nice to have that support. Also, please don't feed me the horror stories about getting addicted to Xanax and Klonopin. I understand the risk. I had no choice but to get on benzo's because my panic attacks were making me become almost faint and I became fearful to drive over them. If you had any pleasant experiences with these two benzo's or would like a friend who's in the same shoes, feel free to comment!

It sucks feeling like a weirdo and that no one understands what you're going through.. :/
