Living with panic disorder

Hi everyone. I'm new to this board but not new to this disorder. I have dealt with it for 15 years. I have been able to live happily...got married, had two children, held a job, but now I am having a really bad time. I always thought that antidepressants would help if I needed them but now I'm not so sure. After reading a lot of posts, it looks like they do not work for everyone. That scares me to death. I have been on 30mg of Prozac for two months and it does not stop my panic. Maybe nothing will work for me either. I have coping skills but it still doesn't help my peace of mind. Does that scare anyone else? That nothing will work? I can't stop panicking at the thought. I am VERY depressed over this. I have benzo's but know I can't take them all the time.

Thanks,
Sandy
