i HAVE HAD ANXIETY PROBLEMS AND ATTACKS FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS NOW. FOR WELL OVER A YEAR I WOULD HAVE A BAD DAY HERE OR THERE BUT I NEVER LET IT STOP ME FROM DOING THINGS. I HAVE BEEN TAKING ALPRAZOLAM .25MG 3XS A DAY AND IT HAS BEEN A HUGE HELP. BUT THEN ABOUT A MONTH AGO I STARTED TO REALIZE THAT WHEN I WOULD TAKE MY MEDS I WOULD BE OK FOR ABOUT 3 OR 4 HOURS THEN WHEN IT WOULD WEAR OUT OF MY SYSTEM I COULD REALLY TELL. I FELT LIKE CRAP UNTIL I TOOK THAT PILL AGAIN. I DO NOT ABUSE MY PILLS BUT HOW MY BODY HAS REACTED TO THEM, CLEARLY MY BODY FEENS FOR THEM. MY DOCTOR THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA TO SWITCH MEDS. HE PUT ME ON LORAZAPM .5MG 2XS A DAY. SAID IT HAS A LONGER LIFE SPAN THAN THE ALPRAZOLAM. I COULDNT TELL YOU IF IT REALLY WORKED OR NOT BECAUSE I GOT MYSELF SO WORKED UP ABOUT TAKING SOMETHING NEW THAT I NEVER KNOW IF IT REALLY DOES OR NOT BECAUSE I GIVE MYSELF MASIVE PANIC ATTACKS WORKING MYSELF UP ABOUT THE NEW MEDS. I RECENTLY HAD BLOODWORK DONE AND FOUND OUT I HAVE LOW GLUCOSE LEVELS WHICH CAN MIMIC AND/OR GIVE YOU ANXIETY ATTACKS. OTHER THAN THAT I AM SUPER HEALTHY. SO CLEARLY I FEEL SHITTY DUE TO THIS DISORDER. LATELY FOR ABOUT A MONTH NOW IT HAS BEEN HELL!!! I HAVE ATLEAST 2 TO 3 ATTACKS A DAY AND FEEL LIKE CRAP IN BETWEEN. AFTER SO LONG OF HAVING THEM UNDER CONTROL, I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY I CANT GO ANYWHERE OR DO ANYTHING WITHOUT HAVING AN ATTACK NOW. MAKES ME FEEL LIKE ALL THE PROGRESS I MADE WAS FOR NOTHING. I HOPE I AM NOT BACK TRACKING. HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE AND IF SO WHAT SHOULD I DO??? I NEED GOOD POSITIVE SUPPORT AND ADVICE RIGHT NOW. I OWN MY OWN BUSINESS AND I CAN NOT AFFORD TO LIVE LIKE THIS ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS! HELP PLEASE!

    I have had anxiety attacks for awhile and my doctor prescribed me Buspar or Buspirone 5mgs 3x day and i didnt want to take them because i dont want to take pills for the rest of my life but i just recently had probably one of the worst panic attacks of my life scared the sh*t out of me, thought i was going to die and i started to take Buspar and its suppose to take weeks to work but its been a couple days and i feel good with little to no anxiety and no side effects really besides maybe a little dizzy after you take it.

    I know what you are going through… I suffered my first attack about 4 years ago. I am on lexapro 20 mg. They just up it to 20. I was doing great for most of the summer then this fall WHAM…. i have every physical symptom you can name… Mornings are the worst for me then when i get home from work it is much better. This has been the longest 4 years of my life and i am only 36…
