Anxiety depression

Posted , 3 users are following.

I woke up today and did several things in quite a hurry, later I got home and felt sleepy, but I was reluctant to fall asleep because I will awake with panic attack, yet I went ahead and tryes to sleep, I layed there sevral minutes but did not /could not fall asleep and I started getting real anious and felt like an anxiety attack was coming on. So I got up, and took a klonopin which takes 15 to 30 minures to kick in ; But after just a fes short minutes, I started feeling better; and klonopin had not kicked in yet. So somewhat odd from usual day. A usual day I would feel anxious and then take a klonopin and later would be calm but a bit sleepy in which I would avoid giving in to sleep by drinking coffee FOR: if I don't and fall to sleep I will then wake up with panic attack?! starting to feel a little better but yet will have to drink coffe so I want fall asllep and wake up with the horrible anxiety attack. I know seems complicated; but there it is; Answers?

    I have Panic Attacks.  LIKE YOU>>when I wake from sleeping. I have often got to the point of trying to stay awake all night. 

    the mornings are really bad. I schedule all my appointments in the evening. I have starting as I awake to rush to computer and read what my deighbors are doing..Something to keep my mind off the panic. Check eith your doctor, I take Buspar. I think it helps and not addictive.

      Thanks for reply..I am taking buspar already. I have noticed in past day or two panic attack is not as bad....something like awave od depression and I get thinking about it and panic. yesterday I took a klonopin for it and soon I was vary calm and felt great...but dont want to get hooked on them, I have read here though that after my paxil and buspar kicks in; (for only been taking it approx two weeks and it takes about 3 to 6 weeks) I want need klonopin or xanax. I hope so. For I'm about to run out of klonopin/xanax and I doubt doctor will presribe me anymore, I hope she does till paxil and buspar kicks in.

      I aslo get panic attacks just out of pure worry, money,bills, unemploymnet about to run out and I'm not in the shape to work.  I read the bible verses and that helps, it seems all we do theses days is where about money; not to mention I have two sons that are worrying me a lot. Hopefully things will get bnetter soon.  thanks for reply
