Hello, I had my first full out panic attack a year ago. Now I am fighting fear and anxiety. And also depression and ocd. and Ptsd. I take paxil 40 mg and colopin. It seems that everytime I get myself under control the dr wants to take me off the colopin. I keep trying to tell them that if I take the .05 twice a day I feel way better. I just feel like my dr and the 50 million emergancey room dr just don't get it. I see a therapist and my dr isn't working with him. The dr wants to put me on blood pressure meds now. but I saw somewhere that blood pressure is effected by panic attacks and nerves. I also just switched dr that day it was our first meeting. I hate going to the see the dr. because i don't feel like they get it. Why do they keep trying to change my meds if they are working?View Thread
My therapist told me that paxil can sometimes make anxiety worse you probably need to talk to your dr. about an add on med to help keep your anxiety under control. I am still trying to work mine out also. Just keep trying you have to tell your self that you are stronger than this and you control your own mind and deep breathing helps a lotView Thread
I go through this all the time. Sometimes if helps me at work or when i am out to go to the bathroom and into a stall and do deep breathing exercises and a major pep talk to myself. But if not I have to get out of there too.View Thread
