Dr Sathya :

Hi

Dr Sathya :

This is Dr Sathya and I am very glad to help you with your question.

Dr Sathya :

There are no controlled studies done to compare the above preparations for panic attacks, so it is not possible to tell accurately which combinatiin is better.

Dr Sathya :

However one thing is sure all these 4 meds you mentioned above are used to treat panic attacks.

Dr Sathya :

Valdoxan is a relatively new med, whereas Xanax is available in the market for very long time.

Dr Sathya :

Both these meds have been used for panic attacks and they are found useful by some patients.

Dr Sathya :

One thing I can say confidently is Valdoxan/Xanax is not superior to the other combination you used before.

Dr Sathya :

However Valdoxan & Xanax are useful for treating panic attacks

Dr Sathya :

These meds do not necessarily produce more side effects compared to the other 2 meds you used before.

Customer:

So i should keep on taking the medication ? am i not going to get addicted ?

Dr Sathya :

The risk of addiction is not high.

Customer:

if i was your patient will you prescribe for me the same medication ?

Dr Sathya :

Yes, that ir correct.

Dr Sathya :

sorry typo, is not ir

Customer:

is there any other advise youc an give me to control my panic attacks ?

Customer:

can*

Dr Sathya :

You may try biofeedback, deep breathing/yogas, meditation etc too

Dr Sathya :

These are non-med approaches

Dr Sathya :

Hypnotherapy might help too

Customer:

thank you Dr. Sathya , Bohat shukriya

Dr Sathya :

You are welcome, all the best! Shukriya.
