Back on 2/15/2007 you posted " Im fellin ok ,havent had panic attack for about a year,and yea zoloft i've benn taking for about 2 years,and clonozepam about year ,on/off,when needed, gettin back to my normal . I guees just like doc told me it might take years to recover. "

Just wondering what happen with the Zoloft if it was working for you? Have you considered going back on the meds that were working for you 2 years ago, the Zoloft and the clonozepam ?

Also have you ever been in any therapy during the past 2 years to help you learn how to deal with the anxiety. I sure hope you find something that works for you.

Happy Holidays and glad to hear from you again.
