> I recently had my first severe panic attack. I have had what I believe to be GAD for a couple of years now. Ever since this major panic attack, I am CONSTANTLY worrying about having another one. Especially when I am at home or driving by myself. Sunday, while watching football by myself, I suffered from a minor P.A. Right in the middle of the P.A., my girlfriend came home and I instantly felt better. I am going to see my doc on WED. and I am hoping he can give me something to calm me down. I do take .5mg of Ativan when I am feeling uneasy but I feel like a higher dosage probably help me more. Does anybody have the same or similair problem as this??? What meds do you take and doo they work??? PLEASE HELP!


-You're doing the right thing about seeing your pdoc! He/she should have some help for you.

It's normal for GAD to continue over time, and if left untreated, become worse and result in panic attacks. It sounds like you are now suffering from "anticipatory anxiety" where you have anxiety about possibly having another panic attack.

I've been taking 10mg Lexpro for 3months now due to GAD and panic attacks. It has helped me tremendously! Instantly helped my anxiety lesson and I haven't suffered from a panic attack since. There are many AD's out there to treat this disorder - you just have to find what works best for you. If interested in learning about lexapro, just go and read past posts. It has done wonders for many!!

Good Luck!!
