> Donna, I know it has been a while since you posted your message. I began having panic attacks about 6 years ago. It came out of no where. My heart would start racing, my head would "spin", I would get a cold sweat and general confusion. Sometimes I would feel detached. My Pysch first prescribed Xanax which calmed everything down pretty quickly. I later had another doctor change the medication to Klonopin. Xanax was a 4 times a day med. Klonopin was a lot easier to live with. I have had very little panic problems since. Mostly sleep panics if I took a nap during the day but that has gone away now. The most recent was a couple of months ago I had a night panic which may have been more of a bad dream/sleep walk than anything. Regardless, I have learned to not be so afraid of panic attacks and have even taken a humorous attitude toward it. When it all first started, I became depressed and very phobic. I very quickly developed a morbid fear of just about everything. That's all history now as I am an actor/writer and am getting my MFA in script and screenwriting at Regent University. It is survivable. I hope this helps you and others. Blessings.

Steve, are you still taking Klonopin? Did you ever discover why panic attacks started? I am getting a lot of night attacks of panic/dreams,etc. Very disturbing and scarey. They are getting worse instead of better. I know they are survivable. But very annoying and disrupting.
