The last few nights I have been waking up in full blown panic mode. I haven't had panic attacks before these last two weeks for over 6 months. Can't help but feel like I am starting all over again. I have been through hypnosis and past life regression though in the last two weeks and gone through some pretty major emotions. I really do feel it has helped but I should have been taking my meds steady throughout this time to keep panic from building up on me!!! (I am only on Xanax as needed) I thought that I was stronger than that but I guess not. I have had to come to grips with the fact that when I go through these major emotional things that I have to take my medicine 3X a day every day for awhile to help me deal. Doctor agrees. She is pushing me to get back on a antidepressant though which I am fighting. She is giving me one month to take my Xanax steady for two weeks than taper off and see if the panic stays away or comes back. If it comes back she wants to try me on Effexor. I've done Zoloft and Prozac. Zoloft quit working after 5 years and Prozac worked for about 2 years and then started causing panic attacks. Been off antidepressants for 6 months. Any input on Effexor? I am just so scared to take any pill at all. It is hard for me to take the Xanax which I take all the time. I have had reactions to quite a few drugs so this is my major hesitation. I still believe strongly in past life regression through hypnosis because it has helped alot of my symptoms which I do not get anymore. I just think it is very traumatic and you need to take your meds when going through it.
