I am Kitt. Some of the antidepressants are used to treat panic attacks. They are usually going to take 2 weeks or more to kick in.
The benzos I have learned are addicting. I have tried many and anded up on 4 mg of Ativan every night for sleep. I have taken some form of bezo for 25 years. Now I am weaning off and substituting Valium for the Ativan. I am down to the equivilant of 1.5 mg of Ativan. It has been a long process as I have had to go slow.
I am not a profesional but I would like to believe that you could find a therapist that could help you overcome or learn new coping mechanisms to deal with your attacks.
I wish you well.
