Patrick,

Sounds a lot like myself (back in my 20's) suffering with excess drinking, social anxiety and depression. Working for the weekend! Yep, no doubt about it, excess booze will make you depressed. I don't know if this would help you any, but maybe you can find a med that reduces your alcohol cravings AND helps with panic. One I have found that is good for anxiety and reduced my alcohol cravings was Effexor. I personally can't take it because I am bipolar and it also triggers hostility and hypomania. If you don't have trouble with bipolar then maybe you ought to give it a shot? I found taking just 25mg/day redyced my booze consumption to a fraction of what it was with several days during the week where I didn't even think of buying any. Desipramine was even better for that (at just 10mg/day), but it made me very panicky. Perhaps Imipramine (Tofranil) might be an idea??

Good luck
Mitch
