Hello mroche. Well, in answer to your question, there is a selection out there to say the least. Several come to mind, Cymbalta, Zoloft, Prozac, Wellbutrin, Celexa, Testoril, Paxil, Lexapro to name a few. All will vary in regards to side effects., combinations and doses. It also of course depends on your diaignosis.Ask your pharmacist, or prescribing physician, they are there to help you. Best wishes to you.
As pledge has said, there are numerous meds that treat both panic attacks and depression. The following link lists the top 20 drugs for your condition:
Many of the medicines listed are antidepressants as well as antianxiety meds. The ones listed as serotonin reuptake inhibitors and serotonin/ norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are both antidepressants and anti panic attacks medications. This is a very treatable condition with lots of choices as you can see. Some of my favorites are Lexapro, Paxil, Zoloft, and Celexa. I take Pristiq and Wellbutrin with continued success.
Hope this helps,
Please try all the ssri's and anything else you can at all of the doses and give it a month each time because starting benzos can cause major problems down the road. Sometimes the best answer is a dual anti anxiety and depression like zoloft (given that you have given it time to work) and counseling. Just spboth zoloft and a benzo so I dont look down on it just hope your journey doesn't HAVE to take you there
all my love
mroche913, I think everyone had covered it. I have panic attacks and depression, after trying several diffrent meds, I finally ended up on Lexapro and xanax, this is working very well for me. But we are all diffrent so what works for me may not be what is right for you. Just get with your doc and start there. Good luck.
For me, ativan works great for panic attacks. Klonopin is longer acting but just didn't do the trick for me. For me cymbalta seems to be working good for depression. I still get depressed but don't reach those really low lows. I've heard great things about. Wellbutrin so i'll be starting that next week. Best of luck
