Discussions that mention valium

Panic Disorders board


welcome,
they last anywhere from a few minutes to about 24 hours, see a doc and ask what he thinks is happening
a large dose of any valium type med will stop a longrunning panic attack
I have had panic attacks that last for hours but the acutal "panic" part of the attack lasts for 10 minutes max. You are then stuck in a cycle of fear and are "panicky" for hours even days. You can have multiple panick attacks in that time. You need to break the cycle somehow. Xanax or valium, ativan etc are the best for that- you say you are on mediciation- are you on any of those? What helps me is taking that medication and then sleeping therefore hitting that reset button.
I am sorry to hear you are feeling badly. I wish none of us had to go through this stuff.
