I know how you are feeling. I too, am relying on Clonazapem. I went running today and everything was fine while running, things are a little better since I took .5 mgs of Clonazepam 5:30 this morning. I'll take another .5 tonight at 9 or 10. I am not comfortable with meds either. I don't drink or smoke and I usually excersise regularly. I haven't recently because of a heel spur and I had the flu. I don't want to become addicted to this stuff however I see no other option right now. I would like to try self help however at this time the Clonazepam is what works. Sometimes I think its best to let the panic attack run its course. Sometimes I don't. I was fine three days ago and for the past 10 months. Then all of a sudden here it comes again. Back to the Clonazepem.
