paxil is like an anti-depressent/anxiety pill plus it lowers libido or at least on me. i have the same scary attacks. my dr put me on Buspar. Its now considered a valium.....but whatever. I take 30 mg of that and an anti-depressent/anxiety pill called Lexapro. I feel that because I take the two together, it conquors my panic attacks. Ive had 2 beginnings of ones which faded fast in the past 7 yrs. Thank god because they scared me so bad.
