You might want to give it a little more time to fully get into your system. If the panic attacks don’t go away or get worse you could be allergic to it.

They don't seek to go away

How long have you been taking the medication, it took me 6 months to fully get better on this medication it takes awhile to settle in but then again everyone’s different. I’m sure you aren’t going to have a heart attack please try not to worry to much about it. I would speak to your doctor or phone call them and see what they think.

This is a normal part of the beginning of the medicine. The first few weeks can be uncomfortable and seem like it's getting worse, but give it time. Of course, if you need to discuss having side effects on the new medicine call your doctor and report them. If you have something serious, go to the nearest doctor, but I had stomach problems and increased anxiety for a while when starting. Still settling in. Best of luck to you, will be sending you positive thoughts and prayers.
