Pleased to hear you're doing much better. Agoraphobia is a relative of panic disorder, and also responds well to the right treatment --- for which you'd still need to see a psychiatrist for re-assessment and revision of your treatment, perhaps. DO discus this with the shrink who prescribed your current meds --- nobody who hasn;t examined you can usefully advise on whether to change them
