I am going on a 12 hour flight in 4 days time and I am scared as hell as I have agoraphobia and HATE hate hate being trapped, so I went to the doctor who gave me 14 tablets of diazepam (2mg each)
She told me to do a test in the house before the flight so tonight was my test. I took one 2mg tablet and immediately had a panic attack after swallowing the pill (hate taking medication and get panicky that i'll have a bad reaction) so I thought 'well at least now im panicking it will mimic me on a flight so I can see if it really calms me' . It didn't calm me down at all, in fact I felt worse! I just felt so panicky, racing thoughts, shivering etc. So I waited 2 hours and then took another 2mg and that hasnt done anything either
it is now 3 hours after taking that pill and I literally feel no different! I don't even feel drowsy, I feel like I can't sleep and just don't feel relaxed.
I'm sooooooooo scared now!!! I cannot get on this flight without something that calms me down
Has this happened to anybody else?? I dont know what to do!
