Day 11 on Prozac, felt like I was making progress, working out, eating better, taking time relax.  Ironically as I'm listening to one of my relaxation tapes I descend into a full blown panic attack.  I begin trembling, the anxious thoughts begin to fill my head, and I worry that I'm having a catastrophic response to the medication.  I'm so frustrated right now, it just came on so randomly.  How do others deal with the rush of negative thoughts that come through your mind in situations like this?

I have learned that setbacks are common with anxiety/panic.  I look at as an opportunity to practice getting through it, but I know how tough that is in the moment.   Starting out on a med often heightens anxiety and that may be playing a big role as well. Do you have a benzodiazepine to take to get you through the episode?  Hang in there and have faith that your mind and body will calm down. I bet you will. Take care
