Re: New here...looking for advice on treatment.

Hi claabs

if you want an antidepressant, paxil should work again, perhaps at a higher dose this time

lorazepam is a valium type med and many do manage their panic attacks using just these types of meds, addiction or dependance is rare.they are very good for panic attacks, many carry a few tablets with them and disolve 1 under the tongue if a panic attack starts

however docs are being sold the antidepressant meds for panic attacks, with the dangers of valium deliberately overstated. the newer antidepressants are still patented and highly profitable whereas all the valium type meds are out of patent, work it out for yourself you may need to find another doc to get these meds, try an older doc.

theres much info in books and on the net about coping with panic attacks
