Hello,
I suffer from panic attacks for 3 years. The last 6 months it got worse. I feel dizzy and anxious all the time. I feel like sooner or later I will lose my mind. It's so scary...
Two days ago I had a really bad panic attack and went to the hospital. The doctor gave me Xanax to take in case I have another panic attack...but to be honest I am scared to take it....
Anyone with similar experience? Have you ever took Xanax to stop a panic attack?

I am always scared to take any medication as well. And i also went to the hospital from a severe panic attack, they also prescibed me a diazapam which did in fact help during a panic attack but i dont think its meant to be taken for a preventitive. Try to stay positive, practice mindfullness and your breathing techniques, they really help. I still get a lot of panic attacks but since i started my recovery im able to control them a little bit better and im able to slowly do things i want able to do. And so can you. Trust me!

Yes, my panic attacks are getting severe by every day. I have been to ER countless times. Every test comes out normal. Went to see a psychiatrist; it's 3rd day I'm taking her prescribed medicine. Hoping for the best.
