What is the best way to deal with extreme anxiety?

I've had anxiety and OCD since I was thirteen (I'm 22 now) but I didn't start having panic attacks until I was around nineteen. Since then, I have been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder and my anxiety has reached an all time high. The anxiety is always there but it gets really bad at around noon and doesn't start to get better until four so for those few hours I am in utter hell. My palms and feet get incredibly sweaty and I have a sensation of pins and needles stabbing me all over my body. My body shakes and the feeling just gets worse. Suicidal thoughts come to my mind, not because I want to die but because I want relief from this unbearable agony. I take .5mg of Klonopin (Clonazepam) twice a day but I feel like I need something much stronger. I will have to talk to my doctor about this obviously but my question is, what is the best way to fight this anxiety? I know everyone reacts differently to different medication but does anyone get any relief from a certain medicine that you can take when you get panic attacks or really bad anxiety? What are your thoughts? Much thanks! :)

I will say yes talk to your dr about it. You may need your dosage upped. Sometimes it helps sometimes it dont. Im going through it myself and trying to find something to help but still no luck. Im on xanax for panic attacks but it dont work. Well sometimes it does and sometimes it just makes my anxiety worse.
