Panic Disorder - No longer able to get medication

Hi,
Several years ago, I began having panic attacks. I felt like I was having a heart attack because my heart was pounding so hard. This was especially bad when I was driving. My doctor put me on klonopin and celexa. My primary physician prescribed this medication.

Here in Kentucky, there has been a problem with controlled substances which I really don't understand but now some doctors have stopped prescribing them. My doctor is pretty old and ready to retire so she stopped prescribing the controlled substances because they require so much paperwork. I don't have insurance, am in school, and have 3 kids. I don't qualify for medicaid and have been on a pay basis and I can't find another doctor who will take me.

This medication is so hard to go off and I want to know if anyone has any suggestions. Even if I can get off it I will still have the anxiety and panic attacks.

Thank you.
