Ive been on antidepressents, SSRI s since 16 years now, ive taken seroxat, seroxat cr, cepralex, zoloft, aand other drugs like xanax, revotril, indiral, and other drugs that i cant even remember their names. Ive visited psychiatrists, psychologists, any proffission that has psych infront of it ive tried it, i did ear scans, head scans, endoscopy, blood test, EKG, heart enzymes, i still have a couple of tests iam gunna do this december too. Before i got my first panic attack i was a happy, energetic, easy going, adventures, thin in weight person 66kgs to be precise, after the panic attack i became a sad, stay at home, afraid to travel, afraid to go out of my home, afraid to stay alone, afraid to be far from a hospital afraid to drive kind of guy, iam afraid of life, but still iam trying to fight. Iam a 120kgs guy or should i say bum that barely goes out barely productive guy, hell is my life, i wish i would die but afraid to die (i know its puzziling) i dont think i deserve good things. We are guinea pigs being tested on. My advice is dont start taking seroxat directly i recommend ZOLOFT it has less side effects with some xanax should be good but you should give it a period in my recommendation at least 90days. if that doesnt work go for seroxat but once you start you have to have in mind that seroxat helps get your life back but on the other hand have a high health risks ( like getting fat, cloged arteries, and almost 0 sexual drive) dont be afraid you are not alone and always have xanax on hand (if you panic put half a tablet under your tongue and swallow the other half) have water always on hand for your dry mouth. As for the heart beaters and pulpitation people with the dizzy effect and fatigue try playing card games or find a hobby that needs lots of thinking to get your mind of your anxiety. EXPERIMENT AND ALWAYS ASK YOUR DOCTOR LOADS OF QUESTIONS, IF HE DOESNT SEEM TO ANSWER OR YOU DONT LIKE HIS FEEDBACK JUST CHANGE HIM AFTERALL HE IS THEIR TO SERVE YOU... DOCTORS NEED US WE DONT NEED THEM IF WE ARE NOT SICK. Hope a day comes were we are no longer just an experiment.
