you can, but you'll get addicted fairly quickly. and you'll be spaced out af all the time.
How long does it last?

I have one everyday that lasts for at least 4 hours. I’ve tried like 3 anti depressants. I’ve tried therapy. I’ve had anxiety for 10 years. Does this mean it is now a long term illness? Nothing fully takes it away or makes it much better.
Solve the root problem,

Panic attacks usually arise from stress overload, this is either usually from substance intake like too much Caffeine or you are constantly thinking about a prior high stress event which lead to a panic attack, this is usually subsconscious and you are not aware of thinking about it

I will write a book about how to solve these problems, medication will not solve the problem, your brain has to change

Thank you but I think I’m going to go to a private GP and get Xanax
Perhaps this is something you might feel strong enough to revisit at some point in the future; there really is a world of difference between therapy and good therapy.

Best wishes.

Nothing was happening today. I was having fun with my family members, genuinely having a good time. Went to my bedroom and listened to music and it started to strike.

You have to think about happened a long time ago, any high stress event which lead to your first panic attack. Panic attacks can also happen when you know you should be doing something but refraining from doing so, this leads to stress build up

xanax has a relatively short half life. valium/diazepam is better if you want something that 'lasts' for hours. but like i said, it's not a cure by any means. it's an expensive habit, and it will alter your thoughts and behavour, if you take it long term. you'll stop giving a crap about most things basically, lol. and everything will become more... bleak.

I don’t remember my first panic attack. Tbh I don’t even remember the exact age but it was from 5-10 years old. No i was just about to study actually something I was refraining from doing then it happened. This doesn’t ever happen. Studying makes me bored but it doesn’t give me panic attacks.

anything to make this go away. I can’t do anything when I have it. I can’t be successful if the anxiety is in my way. I’m going to do it.

you can't be successful if you're on benzos 24/7 either. believe, i'm speaking from experience. just take them as needed. don't take them every day.

Its difficult to give any accurate information, i can only provide general axioms of what is accepted as true
You would need someone to observe your behaviour, what you are doing, what you are thinking about in order to provide any real accurate information
Glasses can also cause eye strain and lead to panic attacks

Then you need higher level care. There are no easy ways out of this, each direction has positives and negatives.

I don’t think I’ll ever be able to stop caring. I am very empathetic and caring person. No medication can stop that. So I’ll take the Valium

You've misunderstood what I've written. "Higher level care" means more specialist intervention with more highly trained clinicians rather than the ones you see in primary care. I can't quite discern from what you've written what treatment you've specifically had bar seeing a psychiatrist and someone else that told you some fairly basic stuff.

Benzos will not solve your issue, they will only mask it and they are addictive. You could use them in conjunction with other things to manage your symptoms though. They're a PRN medication, aka you use them as needed, not daily.

You need to speak to your GP about steps going forward.
