Agree that if you are having mostly dysphoria, as opposed to mainly panic, benzo may make things worse.

antipsychotics mostly suck, but some olanzapine does seem to work well if you are having a really bad couple of days.

You may just need to increase the dose, if the medication is mostly working and just seems to be dropping out. I think there is some evidence for taking an sri just once week a month or so - see:premenstrual dysphoric disorder. perhaps that is what is going on?

Also, it sounds like you benefit from some practice relaxing yourself. I am always banging on about mindfulness meditation. Just taking some time and focusing on breathing slowly is helpful.
