I am a third year kindergarten teacher and I suffer from panic attacks. The only attacks that I have ever had were because of my job. Each year I have taught my attacks have become worse. My first year it was just like the first week of school, which I attributed to being a first year teacher. Then last year I had them again at the start of the school year, then at christmas break and then in the spring. This year the attacks started a month before school and I had to leave school the first day with a major attack. The doctor took me off for two weeks to start Buspar, which did nothing because when I went back yesterday, I paniced again and made it most of the day before I left to see the doctor again. Taking me off Buspar and trying Lexapro now. Also taking effexor for 6 months. My husband and I are trying to decide what for me to do and quiting my job to work elsewhere is about where we are at. What do you think?
