Fine , Rivotril is an excellent drug helps really ward off panic attacks. Since you have panic disorder I want to know what is the dose you were prescribed and by whom and when youre supposed to take it.

Secondly I avise SSRI or TCA work better for a longterm use in Panic disorder.

However kindly answer my questions and and then you can talk to me over phone and I will sort it out for you confidentially.

Psychiatrist Dr. Dushad Ram's  Response
Dear Sir

If diagnosis been conformed by a qualified psychiatrist than here are few things which might have been told to you by your psychiatrist. If Panic attacks are very frequent (more than once a week) hampering your activities than usually choice is continuous medication with selected medication which are drug of choice for this condition.

If frequency is once in a 15 days or months then Revotril 0.5 mg half or one depending on response on required basis is better option.
It is important to know that though during attack you may feel that you are going to die, no mortality due to this condition been reported.

Yoga, Meditation, relaxation technique been used and reported to be useful to the patient. Psychological treatment - Cognitive Behavior Therapy is also available for this condition.
