The use of panic attack medication can be very useful in the right situations. They are most helpful in preventing panic attacks and in reducing the symptoms of an attack once they start. A side benefit of these medications is they often provide those who suffer from these attacks with hope when virtually all expectations of having a normal life have been dashed. They often provide the needed foundation for a plan of recovery.
Several medications have proven to be useful in the clinical treatment of anxiety and panic. The primary groupings of these medications are benzodiazepines, antidepressants and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs).슬롯사이트
Xanax (alprazolam) and Klonopin (clonazepam) are two benzodiazepines that are most often used to treat panic. They are very effective in blocking panic attacks and have relatively few side effects, although there are ones that need to be considered.
Xanax is widely believed to be faster acting than Klonopin which makes it very useful as a preventative measure when one is faced with panic inducing situations or feelings. The drug generally takes less than 20 minutes to start providing relief from feelings of anxiety. However, since it is alcohol based some users can become addicted to it and will also experience some withdrawal symptoms when trying to discontinue its use. Users must stop using Xanax gradually over a period of weeks to avoid the side effects.
Klonopin is slower acting than Xanax, but it also is a little easier to stop using. Also, it tends to provide relief for longer periods of time. Therefore, it will require fewer doses during a day.
