was wondering as I used to suffer from these but then I took escitalopram
yeah i do... does it work?
Yeah, have been suffering from really bad panic attacks for nearly 2 years now...
How long have you been on escitalopram for and how is it making you feel?
I got put on a 10mg course about 1 1/2 months ago.
I only suffer from panic attacks in a particular situation.. e.g. rollercoasters.
They are not nice at all, I'd hate to suffer from them often!
yes. It's frustrating just how violent my physical reactions are to stressful situations/the trigger. Bloody awful. I was probably 20 seconds away from fainting a few days back because of a panic attack. Thankfully I made the decision to leave the room before fainting in a room with 20 people watching. Didn't faint in the end, my blood pressure would have led to this, but I was able to regain proper breathing when I was out in the fresh air.
Had my first today after a few months of none. Scary stuffs.
Have had, but not really so severe and not so often anymore.
Nasty things though, nevertheless
I used to get severe ones about 2 years ago. They come back every so often but I'm able to combat them.
I used to suffer from them 5-6 years ago. I had depression and anxiety disorder. Still on meds now but perfectly fine. Not had a panic attack in about 3 years. So it can be beaten!
I used to have panic attacks which came on in the form of shaking and hyperventilating, with a sense of there being a huge weight on me. I got over them with counselling.
Now I keep having 'episodes' in public places like shops where I'll suddenly feel really claustrophobic, too hot and really sick and desperate for air...I have to run out of the shop to get outside. I think maybe my panic attacks have returned but are manifesting themselves differently. Is that possible? Hmm.
