Welcome to HW, Blue
There is always someone here who can relate and empathize. I don't have panic attacks but do suffer from overwhelming anxiety at times. (I am bipolar).
What problems were you having with Seroquel that caused you to stop it? I take Zyprexa, but only when I feel it's necessary for anxiety. Zyprexa pretty much zaps the anxiety. Wondered if the Seroquel was effective for you.

welcome, Bluerosesix- im sorry you are having such a hard time. you will find strength here, its a special place.
Thinking of you,
I'm so glad you found us here at HW and thanks for introducing yourself. Sounds like you've had a pretty rough time over the last few years. I was hospitilised for anxiety (and concussion - long silly story) earlier this year and I was put in a zombie state for a week. It was not pleasant, and I was fearful they would keep me in there..so I understand your fears.
There are plenty of alternate meds and treatments that can help you live a high quality life without the zombie side effects. I hope you stick around here with us (Kitt is right A/P @ HW is a great place for support and laughs!) and I really look forward to getting to know you better.
I understand your concerns about the medication side effects and I a so happy to see you are advocating for yourself.
Also, I am thrilled to know that you have a plan you use to cut back the anxiety when you feel it rising.
Stick with us as we care.
