Panic Attacks. Are you under care of a psychiatrist?Need to get meds adjusted and only Klonopin (clonazepam) will not treat the underlying anxiety need a good combination of meds. There are a lot of meds available dont lose hope get in with a psychiatrist and get better all the best.
Anxiety. Nope. The most expensive way to access health care is at the emergency room.

The goal is to learn to prevent anxiety and not just cover it up with a sedative. It sounds like you have some catching up to do and need to find a new physician.
