Feel free to ignore my questions.

Do you take the medication at the beginning of the sense of panic, or do you take it later, some time after the panic has taken hold?
Can you anticipate the onset of an attack?

I take the medication somewhere midway through the attack. First I try to tolerate the attack and see if it goes away on its own. No I cannot anticipate the onset of an attack. It happens suddenly.

I try to manage my attacks this way too.

I have never found breathing techniques to be helpful.

Recently I have learnt a new one that helps somewhat, when I notice the grrrrr for the first time. First breathe a normal in breath, hold for a second or two, then continue to breathe in deeply, then a long slow breath out until all the air is gone and you are kind of yawning it out. And repeat. It is supposed to mimic our natural response to distress, like a child shudders their in breath when deeply upset. It's not a miracle cure for me but I find it helps somewhat.

Hugs and respect to you Mimi

I've tried this recently, it does help if the grrrr is appearing
