Hi, sorry to hear you're going through this!
If you want, talk to your doctor about Effexor, it is approved for GAD, and it worked well for *me* when I took it. I had no anxiety at all.
A higher dose of Ativan may help you more, but that's something you and your prescribing doctor need to discuss that would benefit *you* the most.
I take Klonopin and it helps *calm* me down when I need it, and I take it to sleep as part of my 'medication cocktail' I also take Lexapro which has also helped *me* a lot with anxiety.

All the best to you on Wednesday with your doctor, keep us posted:-)

> 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!
