Hello kyjordan32. My suggestion would be to stop taking the prozac and increase the xanax. You were on Paxil and Zoloft before with limited success and as you know, they're SSRI just as Prozac is. The Prozac might be helping you in the long term, (has a long halflife) against your anxiety but not against your panic attacks. The xanax, a benzodiazepine, as you know, short halflife, works very quickly. And thats good for your panic attacks. I'd ask your doctor to increase your xanax. You've been on it some years and most certainly you've built up an intloerance to the drug, thats why you're having an increase in your panic attacks. Personl point of view, I don't care to see a benzodiazepine mixed with a SSRI. Its much like trying to hit the ball with an extra swing that you don't need. Best of wishes,pledge
