I recently was put on high dose prednisone for pneumonia. Over the course of treatment I started having anxiety and panic attacks. I went off the prednisone last week but the anxiety continues. I just started on Buspar and Xanax for the anxiety and panic but I have never been sick so am very concerned about missing work and not being able to live my life. I was told I could not drive until this all settled down. I feel so out of control. How long will this take??? And should I seek inpatient care? I also have the possibility of having a intersitutial lung disease called boop or COP. Really don't know which way to turn, help.
