I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING "PANIC ATTACKS" FOR OVER ONE YEAR. THEY STARTED WHILE DRIVING, BUT OF LATE HAVE BEEN IN CLOSE QUARTER MEETINGS AT WORK. THE SYMPTOMS ARE RAPID , UNCONTROLLABLE HEART RACING, CLAMMY SWEATING HANDS AND A URGENT NEED TO "GET OUT".
I HAVE BEEN TREATED BY GENERAL INTERN FOR THE PAST YEAR AND HE HAS PUT ME ON ZOLOFT.
IT HAS TAKEN MY PERSONALITY AWAY, AND LEAVES ME FEELING LAZY, DULL AND "STONED"

I heard once believe it or not that panic attacts are a learned response. The situation arises, the brain processes it, and makes a memory track. Before you know it the panic attack happens all the time. I have heard that anti anxiety medication works, and in some cases anti depressants such as the zoloft Rx that you have. I would question the dose of zoloft that you are taking I have not heard of people feeling stoned on the drug, more often than not, a manic feeling, is what I have had related to me. go back and talk to the Dr. antidepressant medication takes time to work, and then more work to find the correct antidepressant, and dosage. Once the physical side is under controll or if you are not satisfied with the treatment, counseling, talking about what is going on with you that might lead to the panic attack, eliminate the physical and psychological end of things, but what worked for one person was just mentally calming them selves in the middle of the panic attact with meditation, relaxation techniques, and ridding the attack out to retrain the brain, and thus the chemicals. Emotions are real and change the brain chemestry that stimulate the fight or flight center of the brain, I am sure even on line that you can get more information. Just search panic or anxiety attacks. Take a few deep breaths, and know its going to be ok, and be proactive in your treatment. Good luck to you. Hang in there.
