... Rather than post a response, go to the panic board & read the new post by home_stead. Her post answers it all. It will be worth your while to go read it, it's written by a long time panic attack sufferer and she is also a Registered nurse. Very informative post. (3 replies)
... "just to let my body be anxiety free for a period of time"..... It could work for you, but what are you doing in the interim...if you're not working on it, for example CBT, biofeedback, therapy..etc, you aren't learning the tools you'll need to deal with the anxiety for the long haul. A temporary fix works, until you start reaching for the meds for everytime you feel... (3 replies)

... I hope you weaned off slowly, because I hear beta blockers can have some withdrawals and must be weaned. Withdrawal symptoms can linger long after the drug is out of the system, so maybe that's what you are experiencing? You should be checking your blood pressure too, since you are off meds for it. You mentioned "left over" Ativan. Did you take it on a regular basis before?... (7 replies)
... Oh gosh..I am only on 0.5mg of Klonopin, and my Psychiatrist told me it was the least addictive out of all the substances. I highly doubt I am addicted to it...especially on such a small dose. ... (14 replies)

... small child and it was a very hard time for me when she passed. A few months after she died, I woke up with severe vertigo and dealt with that on and off for at least a year. During the same year I came down with what felt like some kind of virus but it lasted for 3 weeks. I felt tired, weak, shakey. ... (2 replies)

... I started taking the SSRI again 2 days ago as I don't really like taking the klonopin, but still have quite a bit of anxiety and panic. ... (8 replies)
... I should switch to Klonopin. They are both addictive but Klonopin is easier to wean from. It does help alot, but not as well as the Xanex did. ... (1 replies)
... Xanax is addictive, but just as addictive as any other medication you would potentially be prescribed. It is perfectly OK to take .25 mg and cut it in half. ... (13 replies)
... I'm really tempted to go back to my original dose of .5mg a day, but tapering off took me a while and it's obviously not an option I want to go for. I know the addictive qualities of Klonopin firsthand, and tapering isn't something I want to deal with again. ... (5 replies)

... Withdrawal on Zoloft, huh? Gee, I thought SSRI's werent addictive- at least thats what I have been told (I didnt believe it when I was told that, BTW)?! I will say that Xanax was a good medication, but like I said, that one side effect was just too much. However, even that would be better than what I have been going through with PRozac. I am not taking it anymore- I am... (6 replies)
... There are many that have taken Paxil with excellent results (Ricky Williams), and others, like me that have taken it and will never even think of taking it again- I'd rather live in a constant state of panic than be brain dead from Paxil. My experience with it was awful- night sweats and leg cramps, dizziness, lips numb, face numb, brain dead feeling, sexual side effects, etc.... (6 replies)

... s can be great, but you need to find the right one. I also believe they can stop working. I have been on Zoloft, celexa, and Lexapro, probably each one for at least 5 years and then they seem to lose their effectiveness. I am having that problem with the Lexapro at the moment. ... (3 replies)
