> I told the doc that I need better sleep. She doesn't want to give me anything else so I picked up some Benedryl. Well, i fell asleep alright, and was rewarded at 3am with a major panic attack. What's with that?? I tried it again last night and had another panic attack at about 3:30am. Can anyone explain why this happened??
> I like the fact that it makes me sleepy but these panic attacks really suck!

james here....

Are you seeing a pdoc ? If you are seeing a generaL doc
and did not mention trying a sedating AD they would assume
you are asking for sleeping pills, ie addictive. You might
need to be specific in asking for a sleep aid. A consult with a
pdoc (if you are not seeing one) would be anoyher idea.

Herbs.... Valerian, Kava Kava, and Skullcap if you
have not tried them might help. You should check to see if these
herbs are OK to take with your meds as herbs are drugs, too.
Avoid OTC sleep aids,they are either benadryl or induce retrograde memory
