Panic attacks

They really suck when they hit you at 4 AM. Getting tired of it. At least distraction helps a bit. But sleep would be awesome.

Have you tried chamomile tea?  Or wine?

I haven't tried the tea. And I don't drink. DH is a recovering alcoholic. Which is part of what has lead to the panic attacks.

You should really try the tea.  It helps calm you and helps knock you out.  Valerian root tea is a lot more powerful if you just want sleep.

Doc won't give me a scrip for it. Told me to do breathing exercises.

I usually take xanax & valium for my panic/anxiety attacks but the teas that pp told you about work pretty good to just relax you & calm your nerves:-) I'm so sorry to hear that you deal with panic attacks because they are so emotionally & physically draining & horrible to deal with:( I'm not sure if you really want medicine but if you do You need to tell your doctor that you can not function or be the mother/wife you want to be because your having panic attacks...There are many different remedies that can help with this over the counter prescriptions & home remedies...I really hope you find something that helps you..I'll keep you in my thoughts & prayers Mama because I truly know what your going through:+)
