Well, at least you are here to talk with us.

Panicky stuff absolutely sucks. I agree with you. When the panick starts, you need to stop your line of thinking that is creating the panick and think of something else. Make a physical change too. Get up and go to a different room. Go outside and sit on the front door step. Go for a walk.

The psychologists say that we can learn to abort the panick attacks before they get full blown. Part of it is learning the confidence that you can stop them. The other thing that I depend on is controlled breathing. Taking deep breaths, holding them, and then blowing out as slowly as I can through pursed lips, creating a back pressure. The back pressure in my lungs pushes back agains the squeezing of my chest.

It sounds good that your pdoc has a plan for you meds, and isnt' just leaving you hanging. I know it feels slow, but weekly adjustments will keep you from having too many side effects, and also keep you from being over medicated. Hopefully one week you will suddenly notice that life isn't quite so hard.

I second AM's breathing: take slow inhales and let your tummy go out when you inhale...then blow it out real slow...thru those lips making a circle....and that back pressure (what a good way to put it AM, you got it just right!) sort of pushes against the chest muscles that want to clamp down, or in, or something. "Belly breathing," whatever.

Good luck with those meds. Takes time but it is worth it.

Oh, also, what AM said about chaning where you are...like, if you are sitting, get up and go to someplace else. Or vice versa...

thanks you all,
