I have history of panic attacks i keep clonazepam .25 with me, i haven't taken it since 4 months but i can't leave home without keeping it how to get rid?

It's the thought: Carrying the pill with you affords a sense of security that likely helps to prevent panic attacks. Of course, it's not the pill itself, but the thought that it's there to help if you happen to need it. If you want to drop the pill, consider tapping away the anxiety of leaving home without it.

Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed. We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's. Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable.
