Scooter, my anxiety and panic attacks are mostly under control, say about 95%. In addition to effexor xr, I also take xanex so the combination must be working. My bad attacks, which I'm just learning about thru the help of people on this site, may be a form of migranes. I have to confirm this with a new neurologist - my 6th! in the past 7-9 years. I wrote about my bad attack back on 07/11. It's called "Had bad attack, any 1 have one of these?"

It's good to discuss your fears here, cuz so many people can relate. I too, was far from my immediate family till I moved last Sept. Should have done that long ago but you know, the job, etc. I lost one job after 19 yrs thru a merger and my last job, I lost in 6 yrs, also due to a merger. So much for dedication. That's when I said, the hell with it, I'm going home.

Suggestion: when you up your med to the next level, why not go on-line on pbabble and update how you are feeling every hour or so. That's if you have no one elso to be with you. We're here to listen and offer support. Been there/done that/felt that/cried over that/been under that black cloud/ etc, etc.

> Thanks for the bit of encouragement to go to the next level. I know that I am scared, but I will eventually do it. You mentioned you still have severe anxiety attacks, my doc put me on this medication to help with that as well as panic attacks. Do you find that you still have them reguardless and have to learn how to cope, or does the medication seem to make them better. Please let me know. I finally realized a lot of what brought my attacks on this time were visiting my mom in Ar, after not seeing her for about 6 years. I finally realized how much that I missed not having my extended family around. Any advice.
