I know exactly how you feel!  I'm glad you found this place too, I just found it today!  I have panic attacks & ended up in the ER twice within 3 days 5 years ago.  Finally the ER nurse identified that I was having panic attacks & called my doc herself to get me Xanax because the medication they prescribed me the day before would take atleast 1-2 weeks to work!  Since that 2nd bout of panic attacks I've been doing well until Wednesday night with a bad panic attack out of the blue as they usually are, sneaky suckers!!  My heart was racing, heart palpatations, sick to stomach, hot flashes, trembleing, etc.  Took a Xanax right away.  Thank God for those!  I've been under a lot of stress with on & off attacks since Wednesday.  I'm explaining all of this just to let you know I understand what you're going through & you are certainly not alone.  Please feel free to let me know if you just need someone to talk to, it seems to help a lot :)

As the old saying goes: "If at first you're meds don't succeed..." ;-)

First of all, dehydration is a problem with men our age, and that can affecgt out blood pressure, which -

Can affect our anxiety level.

Sux, don't it?

But as I started off saying, all medications are not equal. That'a why there are so many. So don't give up. find a good psychiatrist, and give it a chance. The medications do not always work right off the bat - ask the doc and the pharmacist how long you can expect it to be before you START to feel the effects.
