Hi, I have major anxiety/panic disorder and have been dealing with it for 30 years. I was agoraphobic and house bound for 6 months back when this all started. I got thru that time fairly quickly and have had issues from time to time. For the most part I am pretty but over this past year I am having difficulty with overnight travel. My medication was increased since then however, the anticipatory anxiety about travel still stop me cold. Does anyone else have this issue and do you have suggestions for this? Also, I have been taking Paxil long term and wonder if someone was taking that to and switched to a different medication? What was is and did if work?

I support you. That seems really hard. I have anxiety but it's not like that. I have it where I am nervous about everything. I get extremely agitated and need to be alone sometimes for no reason. It's hard and I understand it can be a struggle.

I was agoraphobic for fourteen years. From age sixteen till I was thirty. I didn’t leave the house. Like you I was on Paxil. I switched to Zoloft due to Paxil having a manufacturing problem and my pharmacy couldn’t get any. What a world of difference it has made. I don’t get the manic feelings like I used to with the Paxil. From my experience with Paxil it wasn’t very helpful.

Thank you. I will certainly check out Zoloft.
