: I was diagnosed with panic attacks over four years ago. I took Xanax and am now on Klonopin Unfortunately, this seems like a problem that will never go away. I go crazy if I am stuck in traffic or have a feeling that I can't escape. Large crowds also adversely affect me. Has anyone ever "recovered" from these attacks or can offer any suggestions? I am tired of living like this (Paxil and Serzone do not help-they only make me more edgy!!). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I also have Panic Disorder I know what you are going through I have been through every epsiode you speak of. I am currently taking xanax just at bedtime and elivil 10mg at bedtime. I have been through relaxation classes, panic classes and therapists. The only think that helped me was to remind myself when i start to panic or when I feel those feelings coming on that it is just a panic attack and it won't hurt me. Keep repeating that to yourself and focus on something other than your symptoms and you should start to relax. I know it is not easy and it took me years to try this but it does help. I am not totally free from panic attacks because I think that it is a chemical imbalance. I do hope someday that they find the right medicine to correct this imbalance in the brain so I can be free of them. I hope I helped you in someway if you want to ask me anymore questions feel free.
