Hi I am new to the group, I am looking for feedback and support. I had my first panic attack at work. I went to the Dr. and was put on Zoloft and Ativan(as needed) well the Zoloft made me not be able to sleep so I was then put on Celexa. I was on 60mg for 4 years until this past year when it started slowly not working. I started feeling my anxiety creep up and random panic attacks. I started having triggers that would set my panic off. So I decided to wean myself off of my of the celexa sense it wasn't working, that was in June. Now am back were I started. I wake up to anxiety and have panic attacks. I went to the dr this past Friday barely because I was afraid I would pass out,not be able to breath, puke, diarrhea, etc...panic attack but I got through it. I was put on Lexapro(a low dose) and Ativan. I now am having to take an Ativan in the morning and afternoon to keep my anxiety under control. I go back to the dr next Friday for them to check and I they said up my medication if need be...I can't wait to wake up in the morning and feel peace. I can't wait until I don't worry as soon as I get up and have that pit in my stomach. I want to live my life. I have a wonderful husband and 2 beautiful children that I want to do things with and not have anxiety hold me back!!!!!!
