Hello everyone, my name is Paul and I have suffered from panic attacks and anxiety for about thirty years know. I've been on and off meds but the only one that has helped me so far is Xanax. I don't like taking meds but if that is the only way I can function in the outside world well so be it. I would love to hear from lots of you on how you all feel and what you feel. I was diag with this when I was twenty years old. Never have been able to get off the meds I started from!!!!!
