    Lia Girl needs assistance with Anxiety attacks

    I started suffering from panic and anxiety attacks slowly since August 07. This past December they escalated. Doc tried my on zoloft but did not help. .. felt worse. I started taking Klonapin because it works the same as Xanax but longer lasting. I take 1 mg in the morning (doc prescribed 3x day but it makes me sleepy) sometimes anouther .5 about 6 hours later and then I feel great. The problem is when I take the one in the 1 mg in the morning the nausea and hot/cold flashes and anxiety in my stomach and diarehea are still there. ANy suggestions?

    I have been suffering from the same thing for 23+ yrs and I am currantly of work because of these attacks. I find it helpful to try and keep busy, I love walking and the fresh air will do wonders for you.I also find talking to people with the same condition helps, we all need support. A good therapist helps too, but find one that doesn't want to push meds also, not that they don't help but sometimes they just put a bandage on the real problem. You said that an attack will happen when you are relaxing, your body might have been relaxing but your mind wasn't, in the back of our mind we're always thinking when will it happen again and sure enough it happens. I know this is gettin long so I will end now, if you would like to email me and we can discuss this more, I have over 23+yrs dealing with this so I think I can help you understand some things. My email is ladybug_864*hotmail.com. Hope this helps

    I went to that website, and made an appointment the very next day with a doctor. We'll see how it goes, but the survey questions told me what level of help I needed.

    Are you on any medication? I have been having the same symptoms...i had to pull over the other day b/c I just couldn't get a grip (and had two babies in the car) I just kept crying and my husband had to come drive me home. What do you take if you are on something?
