Yes it may help with your anxiety attacks and it may help your panic attacks but if you've been without any medication for 10 years God bless you anxiety and panic attacks it's hard to deal with none of the lot of people understand us I'm guessing that you are thinking about taking medication due to the fact that you are feeling worse I hope and pray that's not the case make sure you have a psychiatrist or doctor that really cares those are very hard to come by I believe in you whoever you are I've been suffering from anxiety and panic attacks 25 years if you are planning to take that medication for anxiety and panic attacks start with a small dose to see if that would help control your anxiety and panic attacks I don't believe that's going to make you feel like a zombie trust God and I hope I answered your question and whenever you get any medications make sure you read up on it and do your own research may ...
God bless you remember I've been suffering through this illness for 25 years I'm here just to try to help because I didn't have no one to help me 25 years ago sincerely a friend
Have you tried taking fish oil? This seemed to help my anxiety. I like Wileys Finest Max epa.
I've been taking Hydroxyzine 50mg for about 6 months when I need it, if you don't want to feel like a zombie, don't take it, it makes me incrediblely sleepy, but it does work for the anger and irritability problems I have related to my mental health problems, also the anxiety issues I have with PTSD, it works well for me, but that doesn't mean it will work for you, everybody's different, if you don't feel comfortable with it, then talk to your doctor about it, maybe there's something else they can put you on, just a thought, but it does work for me on the symptoms I described earlier, but it will make you tired, and sleepy, this is what it is designed to do, basically relax your brain, hopefully this helps.
I have taken it in the past along with xanax. He gave it to me to take in between the doses of xanax. I have been on the xanax now, some 31 years so do not feel the effects of it, only if I miss it. I do remember it made me very tired. But could also be a combination of the xanax and hydroxyzine. But both were from same doctor. I do know that it worked, however I don't remember the dosage. If given a chance and I had never been given the xanax to start with I would have definitely take the hydroxyzine. It did help . It calmed me and that is a wonderful feeling when you are so full of anxiety and just want it to stop. Also helped with panic attacks afterwards to relax as it did make you sleepy Best wishes for you.
