I've had anxiety and panic attacks for some months but am now stressing that this may lead to depression. Is this possible? I do feel really down at the moment and don't want to end up feeling any worse. I did have a period of depression 4 years ago and it was terrible. I am taking beta blockers at the moment for the anxiety. Should I ask or suggest to my GP that he prescribe me some antidepressants? I took Seroxat previously and they did work. Any advice would be very much appreciated.
