  • Are you having a panic attack about taking the panic attack med? Just kidding!

    If you don't want to take meds you could do other therapies or self-help type things.

  • you can go to and look at the side effects of the medication. But if you do decide to start taking it, you should never stop any anti-depressant cold. it will need to be slowly tapered. For most people it takes up to 2 weeks for you to even notice the medication is working. Good Luck

  • Taking these meds without therapy is like taking painkillers for a broken leg without getting a cast.

    I strongly recommend going to the library and picking up a copy of No More Panic by Claire Weeks.
