Thanks Melly. It's encouraging to hear that you previously suffered from this and now it's all in the past. I can't even imagine living this way for the rest of my life. It's horrible. But, since you beat this horrible "air hunger" thing, do you have any other words of wisdom? I'm taking Zoloft and Xanax at night....but still have not seen any results. It's hard to describe, but I try so hard not to give in to taking that deep breath, and than my heart starts beating faster and I get even more worried and anxious and than I have to yawn or gasp for air, and the viscious cycle begins all over again. I just want to sleep all day so I don't have to feel this way! Please Help!!! :angel:

Hello Angel :wave:

I am on Propanalol and Effexor and have been doing good. Before these, I was on imipramine & klonopin (which worked great) for years, but I became immune I believe. How long have you been on Zoloft for? If you're not feeling better, it could possibly be that Zoloft is not the right medication for you and maybe your doctor can try another. I tried like maybe 3 before I found what worked for me. I know how you feel. Yesterday, as a matter of fact, I was yawning :yawn: every 2 minutes I think, :eek: but I have had some health problems and was stressing BIG TIME over them and I knew that. I feel much better today!! I hope you get well Angel and best of luck to you. Don't ever give in, it truly gets better, and trust me, when you feel better, you will NOT want to sleep all day !!!! :bouncing:
