Well, about 2 years ago I suffered a death in the family.. my brother who I grew up with my whole life died of cancer at the young age of only 35... after this happend I became what I like to call "Terminally depressed" .. I ended up losing my job because I didn't want to leave my bed and be out in the world, I just wanted my brother to come back... Sooner or later I started forcing myself to get up out of bed and by this time I was still very depressed but not enough anymore to make me completely immobilized, I also found myself to be INCREDIBLY anxious dealing with severe anxiety all throughout my days dealing with CONSTANT panic attacks. Especially in social situations... So a friend of mine convinced me to go see a psychologist who eventually referred me to a pyschiatrist who I began to see regularly...This doctor must have put me on and I must have tried every drug out there from zoloft to paxil, prozac, celexa, buspar, klonopin, and most recently xanax which I'm still on.

NONE of these meds worked for me... the depression, anxiety, and worst of all-panic attacks continued. Eventually, desperate, I began scouring the web for answers and I eventually came across this site .. .. which is this program to cure anxiety/panic attacks for good all naturally.. To make a long story short, it worked incredibly for me.. my anxiety is gone, depression as well almost all but gone, and I haven't had a panic attack in over a month. I do though from time to time still feel sorrow over my brother. However, this is my problem: I'm still taking my xanax because I'm completely ADDICTED.. when I try to stop taking it I start going through incredible withdrawls mentally and physically... If I would have known of this addiction problem I would have never allowed my doctor to put me on them. Has anyone else suffered from benzo addiction and if so, know how to safely get off it with minimal side effects?? Please any advice/comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

P.s- For those of you on SSRI antidepressants, I would really recommend taking a look at this site: .. From what I can tell looking in hindsight, these are potentially very unhealthy dangerous drugs.

Hey Jacky.. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. Congradulations on overcoming your anxiety and panic attacks... It's always good to hear positive stories from people. I also for the most part am over my anxiety.. coincidently as a result of the same program from the very site that you mentioned. It has worked very well for me as well... As far as your addiction problem, I'm not sure but I would say the way to do it would be to probably slowly ween off of it just like you would with any other drug.. Have you told your doctor about this problem???

Welcome to HealingWell and the A & P Forum though you seem to have depression issues also so you may want to read through our Depression Forum.
I am glad you found something that worked for you with your anxiety and this site has been mentioned many times by new members that swear by this system etc.
Each person is different and what works for one may not work for another.  Panic Away comes with a price tag of $67.95 for those who may go to the link and not realize this link is selling their program.  If a member chooses to opt for this option that would be their decision. 
Medications, meditaiton, support groups and therapy are all good ways to work through your anxiety.
Re your Benzo issues, here is one of the best information and weaning schedules you will find on the net.  I used this method with the guidance of my Pdoc to wean off of Ativan and now use a very low dose of Valium. 
Again, welcome.

Hi WackyJacky,

If you are wanting to get off of the benzos, the link/schedule that Kitt provided is the best weaning schedule that I used after she showed me, and it has been great :) I have weaned down now and only take my .5mg of Klonopin as needed.

The best of luck to you!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort. . . Your Bro Sam :)
