Welcome to HCM
The symptoms you have mentioned as shortness of breath
, anxiety, jitteriness etc. are definitely due to anxiety. You used a drug that you took only when necessary. The exact medicine can't be predicted but a lot of medicines are there that can be used in anxiety like SSRI medicines as Fluoxetine
, Paroxetine, Sertaline etc. Other medicines as Duloxetine, Venlafexine are also useful. Benzodiazepines are medicines that are specifically used on SOS basis as Clonazepam
, Lorazepam etc.
Apart from that non medicinal treatment like relaxation exercises, yoga are also useful.
But first of all visit your Psychiatrist
for proper evaluation.
