Hi Everyone,
My first post was last week, after I started having a series of Panic Attacks. Yesterday my doctor prescribed Klonopin. Has anyone tried this? Can you tell me if it has helped you. I refused medicine for a long time, but things have only gotten worse and now I am at the point where I am ready to try some, but I am a little nervous.
Thanks so much!

same page

Good Morning marisaleigh23

Many of the members use this medication and most of them do well on it.  I think if your physician has RX it for you it would be worth trying the medication.

I also use the Valium as Lyn does at a low dose.  I have used meds for 26 years.  I hope you do not need them long.

This med has done wonders for me. Please take it. YOu can start out at a small dose if you and your Dr agree. I'm also doing CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). The therapy combined with the meds has been SO helpful. My panic attacks have slowed considerably.
