Panic Attacks / Lexapro / searching for answers

Posted by mikal on January 13, 2003, at 8:48:29

Hello everybody,

I'm only on my 4th day of Lexapro, and getting used to the side affects. But what I'm really looking for is feed back from others who are suffering from PA's. Has Lexapro helped, how has it helped? What can I expect? I'm soooo very tired of running these thoughts of Heart Attacks over and over like a broken record. They come from out of nowhere.
What really ticks me off is how this all works. I get one or two panic attacks near bed time, and now my thinking establishes an idea to expect a panic attack at bed time, and now I feel as though what may have been just bad timing is now created out of the fear that I will always struggle at this time of day.
I'm so very tired of running these fatalistic thoughts through my head. Why do I do this? Why can I not accept what a doctor says? Why as I find out that my heart is "Normal" do I move on to thinking that I'm going to have a stroke. Who thinks about these things? All the time!
I work out, I'm relatively healthy, I don't drink, I don't smoke... but I'm (in my brain) riddled with disease.

searching for answers,
