I have never been able to feel even close to O.K. with my panic disorder without some AD in me....even oodles of Xanax didn't work. I actually think large doses of benzos may make things worse with anxiety, at least for me. I get depressed and have this funny zombie feeling. About 1.5-2 mg benzos is my limit.
I wasn't really trying to talk about me-my point was that my experience with extreme anxiety like you are feeling, just a benzo-at any dose-wasn't enough. Even a low dose of an AD helped.
You're the caregiver on this board...please take care of yourself as well as you take care of the rest of us.
