Ok, I'm not saying that your doctor is wrong in their diagnosis and treatment using medication, but I do think it might be worth getting a second opinion here from another medical practitioner. I say that because you say that it is ever since you were pregnant with your third child, which makes me very suspicious that something medical is at play here. I'm not a medical practitioner, so wouldn't like to speculate about whether or not this is absolutely the case.
Have you seen a psychologist? This might be worthwhile as well. It could be that the therapy used wasn't effective for panic attacks. A good psychologist will will be able to identify the triggers that used to spark the panic attacks and work out ways to deal with these.
I'm wondering also if you have become so vigilant for those triggers that now you have hyper-vigilance, verging on generalised anxiety. In a sense, I'm wondering if you have become anxious about having panic attacks.
Lots of questions there, I know, but I guess I'm trying to show that there can still be a lot that can be explored and that it's worthwhile to keep trying to find answers.
In short, get a second opinion to make sure the medication and daignosis is correct, with a view to seeing a psychologist who may be able to help you further in your quest to conquer the panic attacks!
Don't give up, let us know how it goes.
