Hi yall, i'm back, i was wondering is there an antidepressent medication, that deals with, panic attacks. First of all i've tried zoloft, still had anxiety, and panic attacks. Also the same with prozac, panic attacks/anxiety. Didn't help. I tried buspar,it wore off about a year.I am currently on two mg. of klonipin at bed time.I have been on it for about a year and a half, an i does not achieve the same effect, when i first started taking it.I'm used to it.I don't have the panic attacks, but i have the anxiety. With this anxiety comes with depression.I work out 3 times a week, but i don't feel the endorphins, kick in after i'm finished working out. So after i finished working out, and cool down, I start to feel the anxiety kick in about 2 hours later. The anxiety feel like a rapid heartbeat. I also play basketball, twice a week. I was wondering is there an anti-depressent that helps with this anxiety.I'm schizo-affective, and live alone.Is there hope. when i go to bed i feel the rapid heartbeat.It's kind of frustrating, to deal with.

Wow, maybe you should just never cool down! Seriously, just wondering if you told your Doc all this and if so, just what response did you get, what does he/she recommend as a med? Let us know so we can comment on the recommendations, you've already tried so much, I can better help if I can know what your Doc says and what else (if anything) you may have tried.
Hope this hepls a bit for the future answers.

Hello Morton! I had extreme panic attacks at one time and the dr put me on pamalor and once it kicked in a couple weeks later I felt great and no more attacks. I also take trazodone at night. The trazodone helps with anxiety and sleep.. I hope this has helped.

I have taken Xanax for my panic attacks & anxiety.
The good thing about this med is that you can take it during the day for anxiety & then if you feel an anxiety attack coming on it is made so that it will actually melt under your tongue quickly to get into your system to ward of the attack. You should check with your dr. to see what he thinks.
Best if luck Kathy

I too suffer from extream anxiety, panic attacks and depression and PTSD I have for years and 6 mo ago finally said enough was enough my Dr. suggested Effexor XR and so far it seems to work.
It won't stop a major attack but the anxiety is somewhat better I too take colonapin at night.
My opinion I really don't think there's anything that gets rid of it completely unless you take so much medication your a Zombi but even a little relief is welcomed.
