But it doesn't seem to work that good anymore. I think I built a tolerance to them as I have done with other medication. I do go someday's without taking them at all. So I am sure I am not addicted. I just when for extreme anxiety or panic attacks as needed. My Psychiatrist does not seem to want to increase the dose... is there a way to make them more effective? (with food, without food, etc... ) When I have a bad panic attack I need it to work... When bad panic attacks hit I feel as if I am loosing my mind or will die. I have tried CBT but it does no good when I am going through this... Any suggestions to help me... I would so appreciate it
