I have both - the A/P is there all the time , though in different 'strenghths' depending on situations etc..

The depression comes in waves - I will be floating along happily til the wave comes and tries to drown and just when I think I'm gonna die coz I can't breath anymore , I float back to the surface and start the journey all over again. Alhtough it's not like I'll know when it's gonna happen next , it's not predictable.

So post on both forums if you want to - do whatever you can to help yourself , and don't worry.

Thank you, everyone, for taking the time to reply. I have a better understanding of this now. I have never had a panic attack. However, I wake up with intense anxiety - I try to pray and can't hold a single thought - my heart races, my mind races. I'm full of fear. My PCP doctor won't prescribe benzo's anymore and my psyche never has. I used to have depression now and then and when I felt anxious and overwhelmed with crying I would take a zanax and it would help. Someone (I think Harry) posted that being worried that every person is going to get addicted is like assuming that every person who takes a drink of alcohol is going to get addicted. It makes me so mad. Thanks for listening.

I have had depression most of my life (I'm 43) and anxiety/panic problems for at least 20 years. I take Xanax for the anxiety and Celexa and Remeron for the depression.

I hvae both, but i will admit, the p/a is worse than the depression most the time. I believe if you can have p/a without depression, kudos to you ;) wouldnt that be just a lil easier??? I wish we were all so happy we just couldnt stand ourselves lol take care, best wishes
