Who ever is mistreating your panic attacks by prescribing and encouraging you to become dependent on Purata, is doing a lousyjob. Don't stop taking them suddenly, as that could be dangerous, but arrange as urgently as possible to see a good local psychiatrist who can re-assess the situation and provide PROPER treatment for panic disorder, which is NEVER Purata. Drugs otherwise used for depression can be very useful, as can CBT counselling specifically ; and the psychiatrist will need to plan with you a careful program to gradually reduce the addictive purate and enable you to slowly get free from them. Actually effective treatment is available, to get rid of the panic attacks and severe anxiety, without becoming pickled in sedatives.
