Question: Can you list the best effective fast acting only to take for emergency panic attacks
Preferably an uncommon benzodiasipine that is very effective and fast active I don't usually take my benzodiasipine as two or three times daily as prescribed only when I need them otherwise they just make me feel down and I don't want to feel depressed.

Emergency use benzodiazepines - clonazepam

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcare Magic for posting your query I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
For emergency purpose clonazepam is a very good medicne. We generally advice our clients to take in a dose of 0.5mg or 1mg. As mouth dissolving options are available, they act very fast.
Hope this helps.
