Discussions that mention valium

Panic Disorders board

welcome :)
lexapro and paxil are both prozac type antidepressants
all antidepressants can be a big help eventually for panic disorder and anxiety but sadly they usually do make our anxiety and panic attacks worse at first :eek:

it helps to reduce the dose by halving the tablet or getting a pillcutter and cutting a tablet into quatrters, try taking the dose just before bed

do try to get some valium type meds as these always help from day one, sadly many docs now wont prescribe any

many of us carry a few valium type tablets with us when out and disolve 1 under the tongue if a panic attack starts, this always helps a lot
valium also helps in getting used to an antidepressant, older docs are usually less antivalium
