I went to my doctor for help with anxiety and panic attacks and was prescribed Trazodone... I've been on it for a week now and I've only been sleeping 2 to maybe 5 hours a night. I use to sleep a good 7 or 8 hours. Is this normal? I know they sometimes prescribe it FOR sleep, but I'm actually sleeping LESS. Also, does trazodone even help with panic attacks? I've read that it only helps with general anxiety disorder, not panic attacks... I need something for both. Almost over a year ago i was taking 300 mg seroquel with 20 mg of fluoxetine, but i stopped taking both of them because the Seroquel was making me too tired all the time and I just decided I didn't want to depend on drugs, but now its different because I'm trying to go back to school and I get panic attacks and anxiety in classrooms or basically just around large groups of people (social anxiety). It gets pretty bad though... constant sweaty palms, heart palpitations, sometimes i feel like i cant speak... and if i have to do public speaking my eyes start to water and i start shaking really bad and i feel like my hearts beating a million miles an hour and i feel like i cant speak or if i do try to speak, it comes out all messed up like i cant talk right. Any help? I'd appreciate it.
