Our expert says:
This sounds like a GP trying to treat a condition where treatment, if the panic attacks are this disabling and not responding to base-line treatment, should be based on an assessment and advice from a specialist psychiatrist.
I would think that your treatment could be much more effective than this, with better selected medication and CBT counselling / therapy as well, which can teach you to control and prevent such attacks using your own strengths. And selecting the right tranquillizer, some can be placed under your tongue when you feel an attack coming on, and this provides more rapid absorption and more rapid relief.
One of the risks of incompletely treated panic attacks with a drug like Zopax, is that you can quite easily become dependent on these drugs, and it sounds as though this might be part of your current problems.
There is no legal or safe way to get the tablets except from a doctor. DO arange to see a good local psychiatrist for a re-assessment and treatment advice - apart from starting you on effective treatment for the panic / anxiety, he/she could also help you reduce this dependency on the Zopax that is making you feel even more anxious
