Panic attacks - to crazychickuk

Posted by rainyday on April 21, 2004, at 19:41:23

Hello - I hope the valium helped you today. I do not know why but on the meds I am on right now the panic attacks are a shadow of their former selves.

I take effexor xr 75mg, wellbutrin 300mg, xanax (if needed and I have to be gasping to take it), and ambien to sleep.

I think that a chemical imbalance amplifies our natural Fight Or Flight response to where it kicks in at the slightness suggestion. I was most bothered by the fact that my attacks did not seem to be triggered by ANYTHING at all. They just get ya.

Please take care and let us know how you are doing.

Hi Crazychick,

Panic attacks are so awful...I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy. I can understand why you're scared to take the Valium, but it worked for you yesterday, it will probably work for you again today. If you're uncomfortable with taking a large dose, cut the pill in half. Taking the valium will really help you relax.

K.
