Paxil (paroxetine) works best when combined with therapy like cbt to help you feel less anxious. ...Read more

What causes tingling in hands during a panic attack? Sorry to ask again just didn't get answer. Thank you in advance
Fight/flight: Our bodies react to threat w/ a wide range of chemical/hormonal responses. They helped our ancestors survive by preparing the body to run or fight. Blood flow is raised and re-directed to muscles from whatever else it was doing. Breathing changes, it's complicated - but dry mouth, sweating, etc., etc. all can happen. The nerve endings in your hands are stimulated. Seek good CBT Tx for the attacks! ...Read more

How to get a benzo to help my panic attacks and insomnia so I have had moderate anxiety my whole life, but in the past year or so it has gotten out of hand. I can't focus in school, i get panic attacks at work and school because i freak out over the small
Symptoms : Symptoms of anxiety disorder and panic attacks could be very disabling. Benzodiazepines can rapidly reduce anxiety symptoms, however, they tend to be addictive, lose effectiveness over time, worsen memory and may cause seizures upon withdrawal. Vilazodone is an antidepressants and many antidepressants are also beneficial in treatment of anxiety disorders. However, not all antidepressants have been approved by regulatory government bodies (such as the us food and drug administration or fda) for treatment of anxiety. Among those that have been approved are ssri class antidepressants (fluoxetine, sertraline, paroxetine) and snri class antidepressants (venlafaxine, duloxetine, desvenlafaxine). I do not believe that vilazodone has such approval. Lack of approval could mean several things but oftentimes it means that the drug has either been tested for a particular condition (e.g. Anxiety) and turned out to be ineffective, or it has not been tested for this condition. I posted a link below to the fda website in case you wish to verify which medications have been approved for treatment of anxiety. Like with many other psychiatric conditions, the best treatment approach is the comprehensive approach. When correctly used, medications can be very effective and helpful but understanding and eliminating the factors that cause or perpetuate anxiety symptoms, or disrupt your sleep, could significantly improve your chances of success. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
