In reply to something about my diagnoses, posted by Renata on December 22, 1999, at 11:03:07

I am 41 yrs old, and have had panic disorder since I ws about 10. (I also have some other problems, but that's not for here.) I tried a lot of "talk" therapy, which did not help me with the
panic. About 7 years ago, I started taking Zoloft (sertraline--an anti-depressant drug that is related to Prozac.) So, if the Prozac does not work, there are other things to try.

With any of these drugs, it can take a while to figure what the best dose is for you, so be patient. Also, some people need to change the time of day they take the drugs to make them work better or have to less side effects. My doctor worked with me to adjust my dosage, and my panic attacks virtually went away very quickly. If your doctor is a psychiatrist (or even not), she should be working with you to get dosing and drug or combination of drugs right--you may have to live with it, but you do not have to suffer with it!

Does your new doctor believe all you have is Panic Disorder (like that's not enough)--are you off all those other drugs?

If you want to know more about when I got the attacks and what they were like (all the time and sheer terror!) and how I coped with it--I'd be happy to trade emails with you. I know what it is like to feel like you are the only one to get the attacks and that there is no one to talk to about it. Even though I grew up in and lived in a very big city in the USA, no one seemed to even know what I had 20 years ago.

Good luck!

in the start doctors were not know what was happening to me.They give me so much pills,that i didn`t have nececary to eat.I was laying in hospital one month.In the time between i was takeing those pills.i wqs thinking that pills are makeing anothet half part of me.I was taking largactil,amyzol and pills like those,because my doctor was think that i have psyhoses.Im May this year i have thorrible attac of panic and i chanced my doctor.A new doctor said to me that i have panic disorder and that i have to learn live with that desease.Now i taking oxetin(prozac) and I trying to live like she said to me,but i think that I could not do that.Please can you give some advice o me.Thank you
