Our expert says:
Zopax is a benzodiazepine sedative tranquillizer. I VERY much doubt that it's "the only drug that works", as there are many alternatives, but apparently it has suited you well previously.
I know of no evidence at all that St John's wort is useful in anxiety and panic attacks. I wouldn't expect any of the herbal remedies to help. There is a risk of becoming dependent on the zopax family of meds if one takes them continuously for over 2 months
Anxiety, and especially panic disorder, responds well to two different methods of treatment - drug also used to treat depression ( and Zopax / Xanax is NOT an antidepressant ) ; and psychological treatment known as CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) a form of talking treatment that helps you gain control over your anxiety.
