Before or after anxiety

Does anyone take their PRN before a panic attack happens or when they are having one. Thought taking one when i think i might have one helps prevent one but i feel jittery and nervous when i take one like this. But this has been only recently. Now will take one only when having an anxiety attack. Hopefully will feel calmness and an end to the anxiety.

I take an extra pill before doing something out of the ordinary that I feel strongly will make me very nervous.

I did the same, took a PRN when faced with uncertain circumstances, I thought it helped me but it might of aggravated my anxiety, but I’m unsure about this.

the best way to beat anxiety is to overcome the fear present when you get anxious. it’s all a mind game really. I had a debilitating panic disorder and wouldn’t leave the house. now I go anywhere I want. I beat the panic by unplugging the fear surrounding getting it.

What does PRN stand for? I have seen that a few times now.

It means use as needed or when necessary.
