suffering from PTSD from multiple military deployments.. have memory loss, Traumatic Brain injury, etc. Suffer from panic attacks and mild depression. Trying to get my dr. to realize my panic attacks are acute and not long lasting; he tries to treat me long term... I need something that I can take when I feel the onset of an attack of an attack much like I take my Sumatriptan at onset of migraine which happens frequently. I want Diazepam or Lorazepam but they are hesitant to give it to me. My dentist gives me a couple of diazepam prior to dental procedures so I have tried it before. I am being treated by VA hostpital. Advice?

From what I'm hearing about the VA, asking for a controlled drug is not going to get it for you. I hear they're as unreasonable as the rest of this country. You are on clonazepam, so another benzo isn't going to be too likely. He's trying to stop the panic attacks and not treat them once they happen. I'm restraining myself about what I think about how they treat our vets. lolol. I was in the army nurse corps.

I am not sure why they have you on both citalopram and Prozac together, as they are both SSRis Zoloft is also an SSRi Like you and others mentioned..alprazolam is fast acting... it apparently is very good for panic attacks but it is also very short in its duration... Maybe you could try Buspar..it is not a controlled substance
Take care, and thank you for your service to our nation richinks
