YES I DO, I HAVE HAD ANXIETY ATTACKS ALL MY LIFE AND JUST LIKE YOU I WAS AFRAID OF MEDS. IT GOT TO THE POINT I HAD OVER 50 SEVERE ATTACKS A DAY. I DROVE MY POOR SISTER NUTS. I JUST KNEW I WAS DYING OR HAVING A HEART ATTACK. SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE REALLY TRUSTED AND SHE GOT ME TO GO TO THE DOCTOR, WHOM IN TURN PUT ME ON ZOLOFT AND ANTIVAN (FOR BREAK THUR ATTACKS) I TOOK THE ZOLOFT ONCE A DAY AND MY SISTER WOULD SIT WITH ME A COUPLE OF HOURS EVERY TIME, SO I WOULD KNOW IF I WAS GOING TO HAVE A REACTION SHE WOULD BE THERE TO GET ME HELP. AFTER THE 3RD WEEK I WAS FINE WITH TAKING THEM, I DIDN'T CARE DIDN'T BOTHER ME A BIT. I AM STILL ON ZOLOFT 10 YEARS LATER, AND MY LIFE IS GOOD. WHAT YOU NEED IS A BUDDY SYSTEM LIKE I HAD TILL THE MEDS GET IN YOUR SYSTEM AND YOU CAN STAND ALONE. NOW GRANT YOU IT MAKES YOU TRIED AND STOMACH A LITTLE UPSET FOR ABOUT 2 WEEKS BUT THAT ALL GOES AWAY. LIFE IS TO SHORT TO LIVE LIKE THAT. TIME FOR YOU TO ENJOY. FIND YOUR BUDDY AND GET STARTED DOWN THE ROAD TO A NORMAL LIFE
