In the past year I started to get panic attacks these past few months have been the worst. I went to my GP and who gave me Citalopram and Beta Blockers to help me cope with them I have been taking Citalopram for nearly two weeks and am just starting to feel the benefits.
I have just recently turned 18 and and drinking is a big part of my social life, I know alcohol is a depressant and it says don't drink with em, but i've never suffered with depression. So letting them take over my life would be like not going out with my friends and doing what everybody else my age is doing.
So what I'm trying to say is I am drinking with them and can anybody else who does the same give me some advice on what expect and stuff?

Its funny you should mention that, I've been like that a couple of times!
if your problem is that bad you should just not drink and accept you'll have to make the odd sacrifice when it comes to changing for the better.yeah everyone your age is doing it but loads of people your age will do stuff aswell that dunt involve drinking.
I had a great night on Friday, i felt so relaxed and really enjoyed myself it was just what I needed I did drink quite alot too! But I felt fine the next day just my usual restlessness and anxiety but no worse than it would have been if I hadn't drank. I even had a few drinks on Sunday afternoon and was fine.
