    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    panic attacks return
    mssadeyes posted:
    have been on 20mg of citalopram for about a month now. my panic attacks went away at first but now i recently have been getting mild opanic attacks... what should i do????
    Patricia Farrell, PhD responded:
    Medication isn't the only answer for panic attacks and I think that both lifestyle changes and some work with a cognitive psychologist would be helpful.

    For self-help, take a look at our Tips column and watch the relaxation breathing video. It can be very helpful and see what simple exercises you can do.
