Hi debi,
I was previously on all those meds and had very frightening expierances. First of all it's your doctor's responsibilty to treat you, ESPECIALLY when your side effects are that horrid. Anyway, I take 2mgs of Klonopin a day along with 100mgs of Pamolar, (generic name is Nortriptyline) I'm usually pretty tired, but I'd rather be tired than having panic attacks 24 hours a dy 7 days a week. I know what you're going through, I was hospitolized for 16 days when I first got diagnosed 5-6 yrs ago. If you have the Klonopin, I suggest you take it on an as needed basis. Try mentioning Pamolar (Nortriptyline) to your doctor, and see what he/she has to say. I'm so sorry you're going through all this BS, just remember that you're not alone, and neither are your children. 5-6 years ago my family went through the same thing. There's an organization called Anxiety Disorders Association of America. They have family oriented programs and literature and such. Well, good luck, and if you're not having success with your doctor, try getting a second opinion.
