I tried CBT and exposure for 10 years before I even touched any meds. Never worked for me either - until I did it with meds. I think your brain really becomes hard wired into that way of thinking and it's near impossible to reverse without chemical help. (Try telling that to someone that's never had a PA).

I guess I was lucky that I didn't have any problems with Paxil - might be because the doc started me on amitriptyline at night at the same time which is quite sedating. If you can't get the moclomide - is it possible you could try a SSRI or SNRI with a benzo for the first few weeks (which is always the worst time for an SSRI). Or do your bad reactions go past the first 4 weeks (i.e. not just the start up effects)?

I had the heart probs with imipramine - am thinking of trying nortrptyline which is supposed to be not as bad.

Everyone seems to be pushing benzos for panic now - I feel like some kind of prude for not wanting to go on them full time - even my doc wants me to.

Hang in there and keep me posted.
