if you can find an antidepressant that works for you it would help you most
night time panic attacks are unpleasant but shouldnt be feared, I dont think your pills will ever stop them, more pills when a panic attack wakes you will help get back to sleep
Hello, I am Kitt.
Just my own experience, I had a reaction to the Lunesta, and it did not help me sleep at all. I was also taking Ativan with it. We stopped the Lunesta and upped the dose of benzo which did work.
I have weaned the benzo down and I am still sleeping well without panic in the middle of the night.
So there is hope.

to prevent them you need to learn lots of CBT and relaxation, all the info is likely to be in your books
as mentioned, an antidepressant med that works for you will prevent or greatly reduce the panic attacks, but panic attacks are only a small problem really
self help books are much better than shrinks, IMO, also much cheaper
the panic attacks do sometimes come back after years and for no particular reason
