Our expert says:
Aropax, is an SSRI ( Prozac family ) antidepressant, which like the others of its family, can also be useful in Panic Disorder and other aniety problems. Why not seekm out CBT counselling, which can also help you learn psychologically to avert and if they arise cope with, such panics ? I know others complain of the numbness they experience with such drugs, but I would have thought that Alzam would have the same effect on you ? At least if they were taken regularly. Where they have an advantage, though, is that they have a quick and relatively brief effect, so as you describe, you can take one when you feel a panic starting to build up, for fairly rapid effects, whereas the ADs like Aropax, need to be taken regularly to produce their benefits.
Alzam is a member of the family of sedative tranquillizers which do commonly produce dependency and attendant problems, thouh some people seem to bwe able to remain on them long-term without increasing the dose they need. Maybe get a comprehensive re-assessment and second opinion from a good local psychiatrist, and check out the availability of CBT at the same time
