I had several panic attack episodes and I take Valium, now experience fear attacks?

I had several panic attacks lately and my doctor – neurologist prescribed me Valium. Now I experience fears which I have never had in the past like fear of food intoxication, being alone by myself and other fears, like the dark and many more. What should I do?

Age: 25
Medications: Valium

Hello. You may need to reevaluate your medication. Valium is a medicine which will relieve anxiety to some extent but can cause somnolence . If you have been experiencing anxiety episodes regularly, several times a week, a medication like Paxil may be beneficial, consult your Doctor or Psychiatrist. For occasional anxiety attacks which occur only in specific social situations and require medication only to suppress moments of anxiety, Etizola SOS may be recommended. Again speak to your health professional about these symptoms.
