Hi there ,

Welcome to Just answer !

Well, when we discussed your auras earlier , then we also discussed the posibility of it being a panic attack after all , so this kind of abrupt onset of this state that you experienced can very well be a panic attack , plus you are already a diagnosed case of Gad ,which means you are quite succeptible to panic attacks ,as well .

But , the good thing is that now that you have decided to start on prozac , it will take care of both panic attacks as well as gad , plus as we discussed earlier , you may take clonazepam for few initial few days along with prozac to assist it in treating panic attack and gad .

I hope this helps..

I wish you all the best..
