Last year I had a 9 hr operation for a small tumor on the ampular vater. after recovery I had to have adjuvent chemo treatment for 6 months. during this period I became very anxious and panic attacks started. I am on Loranzepam at the moment 1mg per day,it gives me relief when I take it but in between taking the tablet, The anxiety is becoming unbareable, I wake up shaking, frightened, feel like I am in a nightmare. I am also frightened of becoming addicted to Loranzepam, so I do not want to increase this dose, (As suggested by the doc) I an thinking of going on Buspirone to help me and eventually stopping th loranzepam. Has anyone had similair experience or have any words of advice I feel desperate.
