hello there, Just to straight with you, I started taking kolipin about 6 years ago. These drugs are VERY additive! If you keep taking any type of benzo. It can be extremely hard too get off of them. I wish I could stop taking , but it looks like Im going to take the rest of my life.try talking to your doc. and look for any... other solutions to your problem. hope i was some help.
Hey, I too suffer from anxiety attacks and counseling is VERY VERY beneficial. I went to individual and group counseling through my local mental health center, which the cost was based on my income. I didn't have insurance then either. You may need the Ativan for a while and cutting them in half and not over taking them is a good idea. Anxiety disorders tend to run in families. Try reading some articles or books on anxiety and see what others did to cope. You are not alone. I tried to remember what it feels like when one is coming on and tried some techniques I learned to keep from hyperventilating and making the attack worse. Try to think about what you are panicking about and see if there is anything you can do to fix that situation. Some cities have support groups for panic/anxiety sufferers. That would be great for you. I hope you feel better very soon.
