... however, I have a fear of panic attacks and want a safe person (husband, adult kids) near by Incase I have a panic attack. This is really affecting my life and the lives of my family members. For example, today my husband needs to travel 40 Miles to a job and asked my oldest daughter to go with him, this caused me to have a panic attack and I asked him to go without her. I am not sure if I need to increase my Lexapro (increased from 5mg to 7.5mg 2 weeks ago) try something else, take a benzo daily or what... I just want my life back! I want to feel okay being alone... ughhh this is such a bummer :( Any help would be greatly appreciated
