HAD to remember Yoo, Boo. Its so important not to panic about panic. So what if you change to a different med, which has a good chance of helping, and maybe there's a panic attack or 2 during the changeover. It;s not the end of the world ( just sometimes feels like it ).
Cipralex is fashionable rather than better than all alternatives, and the same can be said for Rivotril.
Surely I recommended also considering CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) as well as all the medication, as it is excellent in teaching YOU to control anxiety feelings and early panics.
Its very possible that the Ciramil / Cipralex could contribute to these skipped beats ( they're very close to being the same drug - Cipramil includes the ingredient of Cipralex plus a less active version of it ). I see no possible harm in trying different medications. We all differ in how we respond to meds, so no drug is ever always better than all others. ( only, perhaps in the minds of the drug reps who sell them to doctors ).
