It sounds like you are experiencing panic attacks, which can be effectively treated. The problem is not the regimen that you are taking, but the panic attacks themselves, which can occur spontaneously and without any specific anxiety-provoking stimulus.
I would advise you to seek an evaluation from an experienced psychiatrist. If you do indeed have panic disorder, you can experience relief from treatment.
