I too suffer from anxiety and panic attacks in the past. And trust me, I know what
you mean about freaking out in Walmart
or in any store, or the mall. I used to do that all of the time. The lights, the noise, everything would make me so crazy feeling. I would just have to get out. So you're definitely not alone in this. I took Paxil for 2yrs and for me it did work, but it did take some time, and everytime I would increase my dose it seemed like the attacks just got worse, but the would subside.
