Customer Question

I have panic attacks at work for the most part I have given up coffee because I just can't handle it anymore.

Paxil is a correct treatment for Panic attacks. Xanax is not. It is addictive and habit forming That is why it is a controlled substance. To obtain it you need to see a Dr in person and obtain a written prescription. It cannot be obtained online anywhere.
