Have you completely lost your pagerank? Have your rankings completely dropped? This is all part of Googles update called the "Bourbon Update"

Right now everyone is still speculating. Nothing is definate. You can read countless threads from people who think they know what is happening but nobody knows for sure except for Google and they aren't talking.

If your site has dropped in PR....Don't worry. Everyone has 0 pagerank right now including Google. Is page rank a think of the past? We do not know.

If your site has lost major rankings...Do not panic. Do not start making major changes to your site. I know this is difficult but you must sit back, ride the wave, and see what happens.

In my own opinion, it seems that sites that have used techniques to get their site to the top quickly are the ones losing. Keyword stuffers, link monsters, and so forth.

Sites that are using good, honest, and clean SEO techniques have had their rankings stay the same and/or have better results. We have checked our rankings and 90% have stayed the same or are better. 10% is typically what we see go down and change around. That just means those pages need a little more work.

Remember these few things:
Do not spam for the search engines. This will only get you in trouble. It's cheating.
Add new content constantly. Keep your site fresh and clean and up to date.

and the most important.....

Keep calm and be patient. Good things come to those who wait.
