I can only speak from my experience, I am prescribed ativan, kilonopin, and we are working on the anti deppresent right now. So far. I'm on my fifth one. The Ativan and kilonopin are extremely helpful with the anxiety but in my case make the depression worse. That's why they are usually paired with anti depressants. I wouldnt be able to function in life without these meds because they help with my panic attacks. I was in the ER like you unable to breathe, heart palps, shakes ect. I almost lost my job. So as for now I will continue with these ...I just worry about dependency issues.
Hang in there keep us posted
I will see my therapist again tomorrow, and I want to ask her about an anti depressant. The klonopin seems to be helping with anxiety but I still find myself on the verge of tears sometimes and I don't even know why!
And yeah, I walked out of my job on Friday and my boss told me to take a few days off. It's been rough....
