Had a really bad panic/anxiety attack about a month ago. GP prescribed sertraline 50mg 2xdaily, side effects were horrendous so after a week i was advised to stop. Had all clear from health tests I'd been waiting for, i felt this had started my anxiety si thought I'd be ok. Went on holiday to lanzarote , had massive panic attack that lasted for about 5 hrs. Saw Dr he prescribed diazepam 10mg 2xdaily they really calmed me down , and we were able to enjoy the rest of our holiday . Saw gp on my return and he suggested trying fluoxetine. So so glad i found this group ! Although i haven't been anywhere as anxious , I've still not had a full good day yet. Knowing the side effects I'm experiencing are normal for lots of people is reassuring, think the only side effect I've not had is insomnia. Back to see gp in 2 weeks and I'm going to try cognitive behavioural therapy. So fingers crossed . And thanks for sharing , it's really helpful xx
