I was wondering you guys can give me some advise on what I can do for my severe anxiety and panic attacks. I have Reverse Seasonal depression disorder, which they beleive is caused from having too much sun light. I take Cymbalta right now for 2 years, but I dont feel like it's doing too much at all for my anxirty/panic attacks. I cant take benzos cause I cant mix it with other medications I take as it can be a deadly mix so those are out of the question and also they have never helped in the past. I don't know what else is out their for anxiety. I don't want to stop the Cymbalta as it's done wonders for my migraines and fibro. Do you guys know if their's other medications out their for anxity/panic attacks, or maybe counseling? Has counseling helped anyone for anxity/panic issues? I just don't want to suffer another summer feeling like this, because I don't ever want to leave the house, and that isnt fair to my kids cause they wanna go places all the time, and I wanna be able to take them. I promised my daughter I would teach her how to swim this summer, but I cant leave the house if I feel like I'm gonna crawl out of my skin. Also we have plans for a week long vacation at the beach starting July 1st, and I want to be able to enjoy myself. I got myself a puppy to help with my depression and anxiety, and he has helped alot, but I really feel like I need something else.
I see my doctor in 2 weeks, and I wanna be able to ask him about ways to help my anxiety and panic attacks, so I thought maybe if you guys can give me some ideas, I can ask him about them. Thank you so much for listening.
