Hi I am patient of panic attacks and anxiety but it's quite a bit under control with the help of the medication. I take Paxil 40 MG and Xanax 0.5 mg three times a day.
I feel extremely weak the whole day. I feel like being in bed all the times, now one thing which is really bothering me is the vertigo, I don't know if it's vertigo dizziness unstable or something else, I have had this for the past 15 years and for that I takes Serc which doesn't seem to help.
Recently I have developed one thing more. Since most of the times I lay down but when I get up I feel so dizzy so dizzy that I almost blackout, it becomes all dark and then slowly back to normal.
I do have BP can I take medication for that once a day.
I do have cholesterol and I also take medication for that.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Dizziness may be a sequelae of anxiety and panic attacks. take some antivert and rest for a while. If the issue persists get evaluation for that. Along with it consider psychotherapy and psych rehab therapies to see if it helps.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
