Discussions that mention xanax

Panic Disorders board

Hey cougar:

Hope you feel better soon. If I have a panic attack, I get very emotional afterward and usually cry. Then I feel exhausted and I have muscles aches. I agree with the other posters...if you aren't being seen now by a doctor, you should go. There are lots of medications that can help. If I feel panic coming (I can usually tell because I get that feeling of derealization), I take a Xanax and it always makes it go away in about 10-15 minutes. It's been my lifesaver. Sometimes, just knowing I have it in my purse helps me feel secure about going places I might have an attack.
