Panic attacks

I used to control panic attacks by going to the gym and it really helped. But they’re all closed. Is anxiety a Sz symptom or a co-illness. I always wonder. How many of you guys get panic attacks for no real reason?

I get panicked in crowds. First one was in class in college. I think at that moment, I exhibited symptoms of sz, so I’d say a symptom of the illness.

if you don’t learn to ignore the fear of having a panic attack after you’ve already had panic attack / s so that you can unplug the anxiety and fear…I didn’t used to be able to go alone anywhere…my mom went with me until I realized from my therapist teaching that I had nothing to fear…and now I am anxiety free…it takes practice, don’t give up trying to ignore the fear…

I think it’s a bad memory of when you went under from doctor’s drugs. It’s a fear of all of a sudden going under and becoming unconscious and helpless in a strange place.

I was taking Klonopin for anxiety and an occasional panic attack. But since I switched to Abilify, I’ve haven’t had any anxiety so far. I stopped taking the Klonopin. I was only taking 0.5mg of it.

You shouldn’t feel bad about any weight that you are. I know that doesn’t magically change things for you but you are wonderful regardless of how you look. Remember that.

I had a friend who has social anxiety disorder. He stresses and gets panick attacks when surrounded by ppl. He takes Citalopram and it works he says.

Mine aren’t social. They seem to be random. Today I was carrying laundry to the washer and got one.

If its serious ask your pdr about a med for it.
Citalopram is used for many things including panick attacks, not necessarily social.
