I'd like to extend a warm welcome to you on your first visit to Healing Well! To help you get the most out of the A & P Forum please take the time to browse our threads. You will find many members with the same concern as yours.
Sometimes it helps to read others experiences and then you will see what meds are used and how members feel about them. This will give you a knowledge base b/4 you start on any med. Also be sure to ask you Doctor any specific questions and again welcome. This is a great place to find others who know what you are going through.
Welcome to Healing Well, I think you will find this to be a warm, welcoming and helpful community. Many people here have or still go through exactly what you are and I'm sure you will find some helpful answers in either past posts or those that respond directly to this one.
I take meds for my panic attacks as well as for other things and I still have them at times. So it really depends upon each person as to what will work the best for each person, whether it's exercise, meds, music, etc. You just have to find what works best for you.
Many people just don't understand what we go through and they really need to be educated, because this is a real condition that can be quite debilitating at times. So do the best you can to educate your family and friends, maybe buy some books or look up information on line. There are some good resources to the right of the posts (in the yellow area) and as Kitt said, take some time to read some other posts and those may help you.
Please keep posting to let us know how you are doing and again a big welcome to you for coming to the Healing Well family. Stay with us and we will do our best to help you.
