Panic Disorders Board Index

ambien is calming and unlikely to cause panic attacks, ambien is mostly used for sleep, any benzo or valium type med would be better than it though

quitting caffiene causes anxiety problems although in general, panic attack sufferers are better off with no caffiene

effexor is an antidepressant and these meds do reduce or stop panic attacks and anxiety for about 70% of people, however the early side effects can be a nuisance and often cause increased anxiety and stress for the first 2 to 6 weeks, IMO ambien will reduce these

your doc seems antibenzo with an 'antidepressants only for anxiety' approach, this is sadly common nowdays, especially amoungst younger docs

any benzo or valium type med will help if dissolved under the tongue at the start of a panic attack, carry a few tablets with you always
also as mentioned, benzos reduce antidepressant early side effects

you may be better off with another doc who will prescribe benzos, older docs often will

books on overcoming panic attacks have useful advice
