HI EVERYONE,
 
WOW READING ALL YALLS COMMENTS SOUNDS LIKE MY EVERYDAY LIFE.  I WAS RUSHED TO ER BY AMBULANCE IN APRIL CAUSE I THOUGHT I WAS HAVING A HEART ATTACK.  THEY RAN ALL KINDS OF TEST AND EVERYTHING CAME BACK NORMAL.  AT A LATER DATE I  BEGAN TO FEEL THE SAME WAY SO I MADE A APPT. WITH MY REGULAR DOCTOR.  WHICH SHE SAID THAT I AM SUFFERING FROM ANXIETY/PANIC ATTACKS.  I HAVE ALL THOSE SYMPTOMS....HOT FLASHES, TINGLING, DRY MOUTH, HEADACHE, AND ALSO WHILE I'M HAVING AN ATTACK I URINATE TEN TIMES MORE THAN NORMAL.  WELL ANYWAY MY DOC PUT ME ON ZOLOFT.  I STARTED TAKING IT 2 DAYS AGO.  I HAVE TO TAKE A HALF OF ONE FOR THE FIRST WEEK THEN AFTER FIRST WEEK TAKE WHOLE ONE.  DOES ANYONE TAKE THOS MEDICATION, AND DOES IT HELP??/  ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS.  I'M KIND OF NERVOUS about TAKING IT.

Hi Brandy,
I take Zoloft and it has been great for me. Meds are not a cure all but they do help. You need to do the work as well. There are all kinds of things you can do to help get through a PA. Breathing, trusting yourself, knowing that the attack cannot hurt you and staying in the moment. Affirmations are great as well. I have been dealing with Panic my whole life and finally decided meds were in order and I am so glad I decided to take them. I hope you are doing well with the Zoloft. I had a few side effects, but I knew they would go away and they did.
Take care,
eve

Meds didn't work for me but they work for others. Regardless of whether or not you are taking meds, you should try therapy and self help books. They will get at the root of the problem.

Good luck!
