ugh. the politics of prescribing. :-(

lyrica? neurontin? i Know...poor man's benzodiazepines. most humane alternatives I could come up with...

except maybe a carefully selected anti-convulsant? like...lamictal, maybe? those are used, now and then, for agitation. lamictal is the least noxious drug in that class I can think of, although Trileptal might be worth it...

if you low dose it. take it from me, too much Trileptal=impaired concentration and low mood, big time.

what I'm afraid will happen is a doctor will try to push an 'atypical' tranquilizer on you. i take one, because I fall into a diagnostic category that generally requires one, but...

ugh. if you can avoid neuroleptics, please do. please.

ssri drugs are still -too popular- for too many people who -do not- derive benefit from them, it seems. i don't get it, honestly.

maybe...well, have you tried buspar? its cheap, generic, been around forever...not so great on its own, but maybe with an antidepressant, it would/could help simmer you down enough to not have such frightening experiences?

and of course...the 'atypicals.' ugh. unless you're at or nearing psychosis, i would seriously advise you to please, please avoid that class of drugs.

ok. sorry about your situation. hope this helps a bit.
