panic attack
irregular medication
raised BP

episodic Raised BP is part of Panic attack
however to rule out Hypertension u need to check BP at 3 different days where it would be consistent

Nexito i.e., escitalopram have no use if taken irregularly

panic attack occurs in several condition.

so i suggest u to first meet nearest psychiatrist and get evaluated whether u have panic disorder.
if so Paroxetiene would be better drug as it has short half life.i advice u " Do not self medicate

Thanks for posting your query.
Nexito i one the prescribed medicines for panic attack and it is not associated with vertigo.
You should consult with psychaitrist and if you are really suffering from panic attack then it is wonderful medicine.
You should also take propranolol with alprazolam for relief of your symptoms on written prescription.
You should also consult with physician and should take medicines for control of blood pressure.
You should also go for complete blood count, ECG, renal function test, serum electrolytes.
You may have some organic disease apart from panic attacks.
Take care,
Dr.Mayank Bhargava
