> > Im 34 and have anxiety/depresion my whole life. FYI my 8 yr old is dx with ADHD, Dyscalculia, anxiety disored and now she is thinking even possibly Asperger/NCLD!!
> > Back to me, Last summer I started "overbreathing" I cannot seem to get a good deep breath. Been the the ER and said its anxiety. Finall after months of this dibiliting(SP) breathing. Oy ya, I cannot tolerate any of the SSRI's)neck jaw rigidity> Although, I emotionally felt great after four days of the effexor I had to stop(37.5mg) The psychiatrist put me on serzone now up to 200mg daily and .05 of zanax. The great news is NOTHING has changed. I called the DR and just doesnt get it> anyway,This symptom of breathing is not only horrible it feels like i'm @#$$$ drowning!!!! He was VERY reluctant to put me on the zanax because my father is an alchololic. I Thanks for your replies...Lisa and Levi(cool name)
> Wel my hub called him from work expressing his concern that his wife has been still hyperbreathing. BYW- hub is an attorney and he when Dr. called him back the secretary answered he phone, "broome County Atorneys Office" So, of course he wanted to see us IMMEDIATELY. Unfortunatly, he was doing rounds at the psych. ward. THSI TOTALLY FREAKED ME OUT!!!!!! So there i was surrounded by in-patients walking around like well you can imagine!!!! VERY SCARY!!! Had a good talk with him and AGAIN asked my hub if I were a "closet drinker" again we denied it neither one of us do. I hope he believes us now!!! Anyway, He upped my sezone to 300mg per day and 1 mg pf zanax 3 times a day basically doupled both soooooo we'll see!
> Thanks again

Hi Mary, Is'nt Horrible? My first visit to the psychiatrit. he said to me " I'm not goona bit your head off" because my breathing was so bad
I continued to let him this is an allllll day thing? Have you been complaining to he/him about the difficulty breathing? If its badfor you make sure she understands this!!!!!!!!! Oh ya, does it happen almost all day or just when working out?
any drug/alchohol users in the family? If she hasnt asked yet she probably will then!! Be warned...... Dr. are very afraid of putting patients on zanax/or any benzos/ she may even start you on hydroxizine or buspar....accept it and cruise BUT if it not working call back then call back again It seemed to me it was quiet a battle to got on the zanax UUGGHH!!!!!
Let me know, great luck!!
