I am so glad I found a place where I can talk to other people suffering from the same thing I have.  I hope to make friends and have someone to talk to when the PANIC kicks in....
God Bless,

Thanks for the warms welcome. Thank You to everyone. I am so glad I have a place to go. It is hard. I just got back from the doctor and I have something called a-fib. I am trying to get all the info I can get on it. It has to do with my good ol ticker so of course...PANIC ATTACKS ARE IN FULL FORCE NOW. He put me on a med called toprolxl. I am scared to take meds. I am on vistaril for my panic and it doesnt help. Just makes me fall asleep. Like a sleeping pill. If I had a major attack it would not help. My regular doc put me on Paxil...I took it and I dont like it. My dad gets xanax and I took a half of one of those and they helped me. I want to ask my doctor for them...but everyone in our little hick town I live in are drug addicts and she wont give them to me....lol....I dont know...I am so scared about my heart...and all I do now is sit around and imagine it blowing out of my chest. I need help......

Angela, hello! I am new here, too. I have had issues with heart palpitations and my doc put me on a beta blocker. That may be what toprolxl is. The side effect I had for a few days was fatigue. I was very sleepy. But I'll take that side effect over all the others any day. Remember you went to the doctor. He/she has given you a diagnosis and meds. Now it's time to relax. Take the medication and talk to us when needed. Also, explore this forum. There are many resources that may help you!
