Hi there Senseirebel
Welcome to HW
I have had panic attacks that you describe just before sleeping..I think it's because we are finally letting go of all the daily tension in our body and mind - even if we are not consciously thinking about things..I finally learned to control mine thru calm breathing techniques - as soon as you feel them coming on take control of your breathing and see what happens - takes practice but it is possible .
Everyone responds to meds in different ways..when anxiety gets the better of me I have lorazapam on hand..
If you are not happy taking some meds discuss it with your doctor..ask for choices, check out side effects with him and ask for explanations.
Keep us posted.
