severe anxiety and panic attacks

I have been a suffer of anxiety and paniac attacks for 18 years. they use to come and go the last 3 years im on buspar and xanax my doctor wants me off of xanax and put me on either topmax. i am readng about sequel. but i was told i can not takr SSRI by a psycharists due to having a slow metabolism and i get hit hard with the side effects. I just want a medication that will make me feel good meaning i can take my 10 year old out of the house without getting a paniac attack. any suggestions.

I just want to say hello.  I too have been a sufferer of panic and anxiety, pretty much my whole life.  Trying to get through the side effects of Lexapro right now (on week 3)  
I have a 15 yr old, and know exactly what your talking about.  I feel for you, and I hope that you may find something.  Know your not alone.  There are many of us here.  Does the Buspar not work for you?  You say your on that now but you want something else.  What all have you tried?  Michelle
