Sorry to hear about your attacks.  I can relate completely.  I never had a panic attack before until I got sick last April (which resulted in a hysterectomy).  I now suffer from 3-4 attacks a day.  I swear it had something to do with the surgery, but doctors say no.  I'm taking .50 mg xanax 3 X/daily and resperidone in the evening.  I hate taking any meds.  The attacks have hit me while driving as well, which is very scary.  I thought many times I was having a heart attack.  I hope you feel better - take care.
