Anxiety Disorders and Panic Attacks?

I know someone that is human being treated for panic attacks associated w/ an anxiety disorder.

Currently, they hold been taking Zolfot for give or take a few 8 years. However, I have specified this person for around 3 years. I have found that over former times 3 years, this person have changed significantly.

All of the issue they are having, evolve to be side effects of Zolfot. This includes weight gain, drowsiness, a broad lack of joie de vivre and interest and (from what I've heard) a lack of sexual desire.

I suggested this entity stop taking the medication, but they are scared the nouns attacks might start again.

I don't blame them. However, is there anyway that a character can be treated w/ a different medication.

Also, is there anyway a character can receive treatment for anxiety disorders and panic attacks through working w/ a analyst?

Hey there

I am currently taking zoloft for anxiety, and I hold come to realise that each being has different reaction to the drug.

The way it works, is that you should be capable of over time gradually come sour the dosage.

It is reccomended that you don't just transport zolof, but you get help out at the same time so you can swot to manage the anxiety (something I hold failed to do)

There are other medication out there, it's of late a case of chitchat to a doctor.

Finally, be there for him/her, and if you're concerned, don't hold it a secret!

Hope this help
I take Paxil 40 mgs a light of day plus Xanax .25 mgs.. I'm fine,.. Maybe she needs to convert meds.
Hi, sorry to hear your friend is getting panic attacks. If he/she requests to eliminate frenzy attacks tell them to purloin the following steps.

1. Breathe properly. If you control your breathing, you control panic. As soon as you distinguish the signs of anxiety, check your breathing: breathe in slowly through your muzzle pushing your tummy out (to the count of 5 or so). Breathe out slowly and for a bit longer (to the count of 7 or so) through your mouth. Do not breathe rapidly or shallowly (in the chest area). This will soon restore the be a foil for of oxygen and you will feel a great deal better.

2. Try Cognitive Behavioural Therapy! CBT is proven to be the most effective entity for panic attacks and anxiety. It take a bit of work, but it is super effective. (After 15 years of hysterics attacks, mine stopped completely). You can take a course for free online at: It have been funded by NHS Scotland and have had great results thus far.

3. Try relaxation exercise tape (progressive muscular relaxation). They really help if you practise repeatedly enough. This site have instructions on how to do it without the tape (and other useful info):

Best of luck to you both.
