My DH is a psych major and I've been in and out of therapy for several years now. I've taken a bunch of different things for depression and anxiety, but I had my meds changed recently (6 mo ago, so i'm fully adjusted). I was on an antidepressant and Xanax, but when I started my new ob/gyn (I'd moved and couldn't go back to the OB that delivered Kathleen, who had prescribed the original meds), she said just stop taking the Xanax and try to wean off the antidepressant. I had it just like you: panic attacks because I was afraid of how to deal without something for panic attacks... evil little cycle, there.
I started getting shock sensations throughout my body, so bad that I thought I would drop the baby and I literally couldn't hold her for a couple of days unless I stayed sitting the whole time. I went to my regular doctor's office and saw someone random from the practice, but it turned out to be a great experience. He put me back on the antidepressant, added a mood stabilizer (turns out I don't have depression necessarily, but borderline personality disorder... sounds way cooler LOL), and put me on clonazepam. I only take .25 mg, but I can't sleep without it these days.
So basically, I'm saying that I know where you're coming from. That doctor is completely unprofessional for her statements and she needs to help you wean down, not blow you off. If she prescribed you that dose, she can't just wash her hands of it without giving you options, especially if she never told you to stage it down. Best of luck to you in your search for a new, more compassionate doctor.
