Hi, when I originally had my first episode of panic disorder (12 years ago) I was given diazepam to take as and when whilst the SSRIs kicked in. After a 3 or 4 weeks I gradually needed them less and less and was fine on just the SSRIs. I recently had another breakdown and have had my SSRIs increased and diazepam again to use as and when again however I haven't dared to take them, I've not been out of the house properly for about 3 weeks now as I've developed agrophobia!! I'm currently feeling very tense and on edge, I've not slept properly for weeks and I know I'd benefit from the diazepam (it's only 2mg tablets) and it's not the addictiveness that scares me but I'm worried I'll freak out if I start to feel drowsy. I don't drink alcohol anymore as I freak out when I start to feel drunk and my mind has decided that the same scenario will occur with the diazepam. Sorry this is so long winded!
