my doc wants to talk about getting me off my benzodiazepine clonazepam, but beside the xanax, I still need something to deal with the anxiety... does anyone know of non-benzodiazepine drugs or alternative treatments for panic disorder?
BuSpar might help with anxiety
Try Vistaril. Its not a benzo, but it takes weeks to build in your system so it wont help when you have a sudden attack, its not fast acting like benzos.
I also suffer from panic disorder (for almost 20 years now), I take klonopin (clonazepam). It works well for me, however we all react to medications in different ways. Having said that click on the link below for a list of medications for this condition with their respective comments and reviews by other people:
You can use Mirtazapine starting with 15 mg and gradually increasing the dose by 1/2 tablet every 15 to 20 days if required.but a benzo is required to deal with active panic attacks .Ativan or Alprazolam work well also the much abused Diazepam.
Nothing I me. Lol.
I am also looking for a non benzo to replace Klonopin for anxiety attacks
