> What works well for panic attacks and anxiety? I have heard that xanax works well but is short acting. Klonopin lasts longer and seems more of a therapeutic choice. Any other things (like a list - pos/neg)? And what would work well combined with Adderall? I'm also working on cognitive strageties for the anxiety/panic attacks. I'm just trying to figure out how to approach my pdoc about everything on the next visit. Adderall isn't very effective for me at under 30 mg and wears off early in the afternoon so I have to take 10 mg dextrostat. It's the only thing that has worked for me in my med history. I like it and don't want it adjusted. I'm worried about my pdoc wanting to try ssri's and tricyclics on me for the anxiety. I've been on ssri's and they haven't been effective. Neither has risperdal. And I hear zyprexa doesn't help very well in combination with adderall. I don't want to go through another trial and error chain of meds like I have constantly done in the past. And I am worried that my pdoc will rule out some treatments since I have overdosed on lorazepam and smoked marijuana in the past. A year ago for the lorazepam. I feel that I've grown up a lot over the past year and am a lot more mature. I'm out of the abuse stage, but I can't shake the worry that she won't believe me. I'm really working myself up about it and its making things worse. Sorry about getting off topic sortof.


Rakken,

When I was taking Adderall and getting anxious/panicky from it, but getting excellent anti-cycling effect and resolution of ADHD symptoms, I found Serzone (just a tad-25mg twice daily) helped a LOT. I had an allergy to it and had to stop it, but it stopped my anticipatory anxiety quite well and it didn't upset my stomach like SSRI's.
