What is better for panic attacks, clinidium and chlordiazepoxide or clonazepam? My panic attacks have to do usually about stomach issues or nausea.

Ginger tea, ginger capsules, crystallized ginger? It is wonderful for reducing nausea & upset GI tract. If you calm the storm in you gut - you may have much less need for anxiolytics. Take care. ...Read more
