Anxiety at work
An_252399 posted:
Just so happens that I experienced an anxiety attack at work and at other public places. The doctor upped my dosage of prozac from 20 mg to 40 mg. It has improved my concentration but the feeling of impending doom bothered me alot. It gets to the point where I start shaking really badly, feel light headed, chest pains, tightness in throat, and lose concentration. Prior to upping my medication, I can tolerate anxiety pretty well and I was on a fairly low dosage of 10 mg. I've also heard that the anxiety is just a temporary side effect. Is this true?

Get off the Prozac! That is your problem. I would recommend XanaX or Lexapro. But ask your Doctor first This is only my opinion.
Good luck & Peace
