Re: Husbands - Panic Attacks

When I was first diagnosed I took Citalopram and Diazipam together , they really helped with panic attacks, Diazipam acts instantly so he may find them more helpful until the other one kicks in, I don't take them now so they are not hugely addictive in the short term, I'm on another antidepressant now to help with SE of tamoxifen and feel fantastic, whatever gets you through I say, must be very hard for you to be worrying about your hubby on top of it all, hope he's feeling better soon xx Jo 

Re: Husbands - Panic Attacks

This must be an incredibly tough situation for you at a time when you need all the support you can get.  I am pretty sure that citolpram takes a  couple of weeks to kick in and once it does he should start to feel less panicky and upset.   I know panic attacks can be horrible and scary but people can be taught techniques by counsellors to control them.   Have you talked to your BCN about this? Maybe she can put you in touch with some counselling and support for both of you.  Also you could try the help line on this site.  People that have used it have posted to say it is really helpful.   I was diagnosed on routine mammogram too and the shock was horrendous but I am through surgery now and on long term tablets and feeling fine.  There is light at the end of the tunnel! Please do keep asking for help for yourself and your husband from your GP as well because you should not be having all this added anxiety and distress worrying about him on top of having to go through treatment.  Right now you are the one who needs supporting.   Sending you lots of gentle hugs xx
