Have you always suffered from Panic Attacks, or only since the wedding drew close ?
10 mg a day is rather a low dose of Cipramil --- with ADs, one should take the usual dose or not take it ; and small dose can give side-effects without benefits.
From the sound of it, what you really need is Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, CBT, which would help you learn how to avoid feling panicked at all, and to control rising anxiwety feelings when they occur. Sounds, too, like a major element of social anxiety disorder, rather than panic disorder--- true panic disorder attacks are random, not occurring on predictable occasions. CBT would be dandy for this. And a month is time enough to achieve a useful amount.
DO see a good local shrink for assessment and treatment advice, to get rid of these social anxiety attacks altogether, whether at your weding or on any other occasion.
Do NOT seek out hypnotherapy, which is the wrong approach for this problem. Sorry Anon and Jill were so childish and spiteful, I wonder why they're wasting time on this forum if that;'s their attitude to other people's problems.
And closer to the time, your chrink or GP could add some beta-blocker tabs to control the physical symptoms, which they do very well --- stopping the trembling, rapid pulse, and so on.
