I have had underlying anxiety for years, but never panic. Then, about 2 years ago out of nowhere, I had a panic attack on the highway, for no reason. Then I started having panic attacks when speaking in front of my Rotary Club, or giving sales presentations for my job. Seeing that I cannot lose my job, I went to my doctor. He gave me Klonopin because I refuse to go on anything I have to take daily. The problem is, I have had to take the Klonopin no less the 3 days a week, but usually 5. It is saving my job, but it is thinning my hair. The permanent drugs my doctor wants to put me on all say they could cause irreversable hair thinning in some people. So I assume if I'm having that reacation to Klonopin, I am likely to have it on the other drugs as well. I've had several panic attacks on the highway, so I have avoided it for 9 months now. Very difficult for my job, because I travel to appointments an hour away to corporate headquarters a few times a month. I'm embarrassed because when it's my turn to drive, I have a co-worker drive my car on the interstate. I've seen a therapist, but after 15 sessions I was not making progress,nothing cognitive was happening, no concrete advice or activities were given to help me over come the things that trigger the panic. I also have it out of the blue sometimes for no reason. Any one experience the hair loss issues?
