Hi I know how you feel. You CANNOT let it ruin your life. Anxiety and panic attacks are an on goi g cycle. I havent had a panic attack in a year and when I was having them I was always worried when is my next one am I going crazy. I took xanax every night for about 3 months and it truley helped It let my mind regain sanity.  Then I knew I wasnt craxy it was I was putting my energy in always worring therefor I was always panicking, does that make sense? You have ti keep busy go ti work go to school and take ur mind off of it I know its easier said then done but u cannot let this emotion ruin you

Adriana it's possible that you have seasonal allergies, they do really cause you to be very dizzy and very light headed.  So you could try daily Zyrtec or Claritin.   honey your doing the right thing I'm so proud of you and I don't even know you!  I personally know how hard is to get yourself better and build your support system!  Now, about your medication you should take it as directed on bottle and don't get scared by what stuff says, it's there to help and protect you.  Be careful reading posts like these ( well of course not mine : ) )ok, a lot of people will say weird **** about meds, but who knows they could be takin this and when it gets mixed up with that coagulant over there it causes this.  Some of us have tried every med in the world!  So please keep trying I hope you've already moved past this by the time my message gets to you so you don't need it! My lil sis has been upstairs for 4 years!
