Panic Disorders board


I always went to my GP for my panic disorder.
I went to two different Pdoc's and in my case they were the ones who wanted to blame everything on the way I was raised and hand out SSRI's like they were candy.
One actually told me he wouldn't see me again unless I went on an SSRI, even after I told him I'* had allergic reactions to Paxil and Zoloft...needless to say he didn't need to worry about seeing me again.

All GP's aren't bad and and P's aren't good, you just have to find one you like and most importantly that you trust.

A good Doctor would want to run other tests just to rule out anything else before they tell you that you have panic disorder.
But, if you've already been told that's what you have and you've already had tests, that should be okay.
If he/she wants to run other tests tell him you already had them, if he wants to see the test results the other Doctor could fax him the results.

As for looking like a moron...don't worry about that, you won't look or sound stupid, there are a lot of people in this world that have this problem, I'm sure what you tell him won't be anything he hasn't heard before.

I was scared the first time I went, but I knew I'* never get help if I didn't tell the whole story so that's what I did.
He didn't rush me, he listened to every word I said.
I'm very lucky, I have a wonderful GP he's a very caring Man.

As for the medication.
Yes, you should tell him what you've tried in the past and what worked and what didn't work for you.
You have every right to ask him about different kinds of medication.
If you think a benzo would work for you, by all means tell him that.
