I've had panic disorder and depression for 22 years. It's been getting worse lately. I've been on Prozac and lorazepam all this time. What can I do?

In brief: Let your prescribing

provider know. Add in non-pharmacologic treatments.
Cognitive Behavioral therapy can be effective. Aim for daily exercise, 8 hrs sleep /night & good nutrition w 5 servings of veggies & 4 of fruit per day. Try tai chi, yoga, Qi Gong, progressive muscle relaxation, deep breathing exercises or meditation. Take care.
