Discussions that mention paxil

Panic Disorders board

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to share a few things with everyone here. The other night I was driving home from work and it was snowing really bad and freezing rain. The roads where really bad and i got really freaked out. And went into an attack, i came home and still couldn't calm down. I ended up laying down on my bed on my stomach and taking deep breaths and doing a counting trick someone tought me, i was able to calm myself down. I was exhausted after the fact but i got myself relaxed enough to feel alot better. Also i've been keeping myself busy with reading a book, and playing a game so that I don't have time to think about irrational things. I still have to go back to the dr's though because i was put on paxil to start with and that didn't work, so i was then put on lexapro which gave me intense headache's so i go back to the dr's on the 3rd of feb for round 3. Hopefully 3rd time will be a charm. I have been feeling alot better lately haveing alittle depersonalization sometimes everything seems sureal or whatever you want to call that. But anywho i just wanted to share that i found laying on my stomach works while having an attack and counting with deep breaths and keep yourself busy as possible. I know most of you probably know this already but i thought i'd share.
