Hi guys,
I'm new to this but I just wanted to talk. I think I'm not suffering from depression but a bad case of panic attacks...I had my first attack 3 years ago (full blown one, with hyper ventilation that paralysed me for 10') and was on Cipralex 10mg since about 8months ago. I felt good with myself and thought I had my life in control till about 5 days ago. they came back and I fell like crap again!!
I'm currently taking Xanax 0.25mg till Cipralex starts to kick in. But the side effects are killing me. I constantly feel sick and down and just want to hide from everyone and everything. Ppl around me tell that I have to help myself but I can't do it!!!!!!

getting by

Hi Kitty,

You have to learn to relax and breathe through your panic attacks. They can be rather frightening at times. But know it is only a panic attack and that it will be over soon.

We have a wonderful "anxiety and panic" forum. You might want to check it out. I think you would find more people exp0eriencing what you are going through. Though you are totally welcome to post here as much as you want.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Hugs, Karen
