I have been using clobestasol for a few months. It has helped clear my psoriasis but for the last month I have been having shortness of breath, weakness, and tightness in my chest. I'm 40 and just had physical and all blood work done and their was no abnormalities. Could it possibly be from the clobetasol? My doctor is writing it off as panic attacks, but I have had those before and this is an almost constant feeling

No, your symptoms are unlikely to be caused by the clobetasol. You should see your doctor again if your symptoms continue.
Alternatively, if you are not convinced, you could stop taking the clobetasol and see if the symptoms disappear. Check with your doctor first before trying this.
