Yea, so massive relapse recently. The worst attacks I have ever experienced and fill up my days. I used to be able to tolerate some attacks or going places but now I'm even terrified of going back to school. Does anyone know what could cause this sudden relapse? Also, I'm feeling very empty and depressed and not nearly as hungry as I usually am. Anyone else feeling like this? It's relaly creeping me out and it's torchure. However, on the upside my dad believes me about this and I am seeing a phsych for it to see if she can help and if she can't, she'll refer me to a doctor for meds.
ps- does anyone know if there is a medication that can be used for both depression and panic?

I know exactly where you are right now, I'm in the same place.  Two weeks ago, I had an entire week completely anxiety free and then last Thursday had a very panicky morning and have been a wreck ever since, anxiety is back, and all my fears are running through my head again.  It's very "normal" to go through setbacks, or ups and downs with this...normal, but very hard to go back to feeling so miserable after a fairly good period.  I sometimes find it very hard to get back on track with my cbt and relaxation when a setback first hits, so I go back to reading all the books I have on the subject to help me get re-aligned again.  I'm so glad that your Dad is understanding this and that you are getting some help.  Sorry, I don't know anything about medication, but I'm sure someone else will be along to help you out with a suggestion for that.  Hang in there!

The dreaded relapse, just when you think you've finally gained some control.
Advanza/ remeron? in the US is an anti-d that is used to treat both depression and anxiety. I'm just swapping to it now and hopefully when it works I can start weaning off the clonazepam.
