anxiety attack in the evening!

Posted , 2 users are following.

im on escivex and clonazepam for almost a week now, my sleep is good and in the morning after taking my meds i feel ok throughout the day but when night comes i became anxious and most of the time have anxiety attacks...my heart is racing and very strong feels like its gonna jump out of my chest and my veins will explode...what i hate most is even if i try deep breathing and relax ( which usually lessen my usual anxiety attacks ) it doesn't seem to work and it worries me a lot...can you give me any advice on this? thanks!

    You probably need to wait a few weeks for your medications to level and become constant in your blood stream. Many make you a bit anxious at first. You can call and ask the doctor if this is ok.

      Most anxiety medication can actually make you feel worse for the first few weeks until they get into your system. The doctor told me this. I always seem to feel a bit more anxious than normal in evening to. Not really sure why. Maybe because we are doing things to distract us during the day and later on we are not doing as much. Hope you feel better soon. Try and not worry. Xxx

    at least it is only 30 minutes. Try and control your breathing breath deep and slow. This should calm you down.
