Wouldn't it be advisable for you to re-visit your doc prescribing the Artivan SL ? Ativan can help to abort panic attacks, but doesn't remove the causes, and other drugs including some used also as ADs, can help relieve the problem. The problem with products like ZMA is that they sneak past the requirements for registration as a medicine ( which saves them an enormous amount of money ) but this means that none of the research we'd need to know EXACTLY how they operate in the body, and whether they might interact with other drugs and meds, is done. You surely don't NEED to be taking the ZMA or any other supplment. Why not stop it, and see how the proper meds on their own, help ? Absolutely NOTHING in ZMA could possibly make you, or anyone else, feel good --- that's just a placebo effect. Urbanol for a week might help, and your psych should be back soon, and can review the whole picture properly.
I'd still like to see CBT in place to help you cope more effectively when you do start to feel anxious or panicky.
