Anna Laura,

I have not ever really been diagnosed with depression. The only time I have ever really show any signs of depression is when I take benzos on a regular basis then I expereince a kind of chemical induced state of depression. I have panic attacks and I know sometimes depression plays a role but for me the antidepressants don't help me with the panics and in some cases make them worse. I have tried them all. The first few weeks I get some relief after initial symptoms subside but then the panics break through. I would have to dose up and am not willing to live with the side effects. I know some people on the board are depressed to the point where the side effects are meaningless. ......It is either take this pill or die.....My situation is not that grave. I am 42 I have lived with the panics unmedicated until 3 years ago and to be quite honest the medications have not really improved the quality of my life that much. Xanax does kill the panics but I am in the process right now of coming off that and will use it prn. Taking it around the clock has
made life a little dull around the edges. Thanks and good luck.
