Dear CM

I also suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, and although these generally pass withing 3 or so weeks, I found a few other methods that also work: Try exercise, but nothing too exerting as it's easy to overdo it, and eating a little better. I don't know the reasoning behind my theory, but it works for me. Perhaps Sertraline is more effective when nutrients are more readily available? But if you're finding these panic attacks aren't subsiding, you could ask your doctor about perhaps some mild benzodiazepenes, although I wouldnt recommend them, a good mix of say, Temazepam and Sertraline isn't contraindicative afaik, and does spell relief for some. Personally, I'd prefer Olanzapine (Zyprexa) for the panic attacks in addition to Sertraline. Please note however, I'm not a psych or a MD, only a patient, and you should see someone qualified in your area if you're still feeling panicky. Another thing it could also be is the Sertraline triggering these panic attacks, in which case Sertraline might not be the AD for you.

Hope this helps
