Well, as your psychologist says, any number of extra stresses might be spurring this on, though its no so clear why they would affect you in this particular way rather than othwers. Personally, I wouln;t use Cipralex to treat anxiety, and would prefer another member of the saem SSRI family, but its an accepted potential treatment. Similarly, I wouldn't want someone to be on xanor too oong, as it can cause dependency. But neither druh ought to be stopped abruptly. ANyhow, I'd think especially with the prospect of pregnancy ahead, I would have recommended Cog nitive-Behaviour Therapy, CBT, which is very effective in treating anxiety and even panic disorder, and has no side-effects or problems when combined with pregnancy. If you do mean it's a psychologist you are seeing, rather than a psychiatrist, I would ask her whether you are using CBT methods ( the best tested and proven method in these circumstances.
