Hi everyone,
I've been having panic attacks for the last few months... 3 totally full blown ones since November, during the last one I had to call an ambulance and it scared me so much I started taking buspirone and also xanax. I've been taking these for a month but they only seem like band aids and I'm afraid I'm getting addicted to xanax (I take at most about 1 mg a day, most days 0.5, when i have a panic attack about 1 mg) I don't know what to do... I'm also depressed because I broke up with my boyfriend of 10 years, and I am afraid of everything down to the food I eat... I've had every test done so I know it's not a heart condition but I'm still so afriaid of having the next panic attack especially when I'm all alone at night. I feel like I constantly need someone around me to watch me. I also get scared of driving at night by myself and long distances by myself... I don't want to take xanax forever but during these long lonely nights I don't know what to do. Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Should I take ativan over xanax? The next day after taking xanax I feel very chemically depressed... which adds to the depression I already have...
