    Hey! I'm glad you shared your story And I'm glad to be apart of other people sharing that share my condition. I have panic attacks and agoraphobia. I think you might be developing depression. Prozac is a good drug how ever it take two weeks to work. It might be time to make an appointment with a psychiatrist if you hvent already. This is completely treatable and you will be fine. It may seem hard right now but we will all get through this. Just remeber one step at a time. Can't wait to heAt more from you.

    It's very strange you say about the song going round in your head - when my anxiety was at it's highest in the ngiht, I would wake up with one particular song I'd heard in the daytime just RACING through my head, like the whole song, in fast forward. I didn't know if I was the only one! It's such a weird feeling.

    I've been on Citalopram for 6 weeks and I am much better now. I know things like Xanex are short term where as SSRI's like Cit are slowly released in to the system therfore it's tough at first but a few weeks in and you're great. About 8 weeks to 4 weeks ago (so about 4 weeks in total) I was a mess - every minute felt like an hour, and every hour like a day. Honestly. i'm in a much better place now. I don't know if you've tried citalopram?

    Anxiety causes all those symptoms I'm afraid.  I've had them all.  You are not alone.  Have you tried talking to your doctor?

    Hey Nick,

    you didn't mention how long you have been on the Xanax...but I'd read and heard that it can turn on you. Meaning what it was meant to treat, quits working and maybe making it worse. Never go off a benzo with out doctors advice and a good plan on weaning. If I were you I'd find a good SSRI and once you get 3 months into it, start the wean and just see f you don't feel better.

    ask your doctor...bring a list with you just in case you forget all the stuff you need to tell him/her.

    you need to speak with a doctor, don't worry it'll get better soon!
