Hi and welcome,
I agree that you should try to speak with your doctor to see about getting your meds back, since that worked for you in the past. Do you use cbt? That is what has helped me the most. It also helps me to read books on the topic of panic/anxiety...the more information I have the more at ease I am. It's worth a try and I'm sure you can find many books at the library or on amazon. My favorite author is Claire Weekes, but there are many others out there. Keep posting here too, you will find amazing support! All my best to you!
Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am very happy you found us and also I am pleased that your have received advice from some of our wonderful members.
I am so sorry you are out of work and now your insurance is gone too. I am going to post the link for Walmarts $4.00 programs. Some of the mental health drugs are on the list, but none of the Benzos. You might call your pharmacy to see the price of Klonopin or perhaps a older benzo that works but does not cost so much.
I take Valium, it has a long half time which means it stays in your body longer and it is usually one of the less expensive.

Hi Tiff, great to meet you, wish it was under better circumstances! im so very sorry you are fighting this battle at the moment. not that you should ever have to, but you will get used to A/P in time and the struggles and curveballs it presents. i say this because you have posted that you are new to this- in time, with the right professional help, you will be able to read the signs in your body and know that you are ok, its just the A/P rearing its stupid, and somewhat painful head that is making you feel so rotten.
i pray that this gets easier for you and that your job situation improves quickly, as im sure that is exacerbating your anxiety. You can always come here and feel safe- i do. XX
