Anxiety Disorders/Panic Attacks?

I know someone that is being treated for Panic Attacks associated w/ an Anxiety Disorder.

Currently, they have been taking Zolfot for about 8 years. However, I have known this person for about 3 years. I have found that over the past 3 years, this person has changed significantly.

All of the issue they are having, happen to be side effects of Zolfot. This includes weight gain, drowsiness, a general lack of energy and interest and (from what I’ve heard) a lack of sexual desire.

I suggested this person stop taking the medication, but they are scared the panic attacks might start again.

I don’t blame them. However, is there anyway that a person can be treated w/ a different medication.

Also, is there anyway a person can receive treatment for Anxiety Disorders and panic attacks through working w/ a therapist?

Hi, sorry to hear your friend is getting panic attacks. If he/she want to eliminate panic attacks tell them to take the following steps.

1.Breathe properly. If you control your breathing, you control panic. As soon as you notice the Signs Of Anxiety, check your breathing: breathe in slowly through your nose pushing your tummy out (to the count of 5 or so). Breathe out slowly and for a bit longer (to the count of 7 or so) through your mouth. Do not breathe rapidly or shallowly (in the chest area). This will soon restore the balance of oxygen and you will feel a lot better.

2. Try Cognitive Behavioural Therapy! CBT is proven to be the most effective thing for Panic Attacks And anxiety. It takes a bit of work, but it is super effective. (After 15 years of panic attacks, mine stopped completely). You can take a course for free online at: livinglifetothefull.com It has been funded by NHS Scotland and has had great results thus far.

3. Try relaxation exercise tapes (progressive muscular relaxation). They really help if you practise often enough. This site has instructions on how to do it without the tapes (and other useful info): http://www.cci.health.wa.gov.au/resource…

Best of luck to you both.
