It did make your panic worse? I'm sorry to hear that, but releived it happened to someone else too so I know i"m not crazy. I literally took one dose of Prozac and it caused me to panic... Here's the timeline:

at age 13 I was on many different mood stabilizers and antidpressants. When I was 21 I tried to get off of everything, and did very poorly. So I went back on.
Two years ago::: I was on Seroquel and Celexa, and the Seroquel gave me horrible stomach cramping, and facial twitching. Turned out I had an impacted bowel and I went off of it.
On Celexa I was so sedated, and my anxiety was still horrible, so decided to try to switch back to zoloft. (the best I ever was was when I was 19, on seroquel and zoloft).
So three months::: ago I began to titrate down on the Celexa and introduced Zoloft and began having insane symptoms: hot flashes, back spasms, seeing lights, panic. It was so crazy and terrible that I decided to try to just stay off of meds, as I became paranoid about my health.
Since then things have been really tough. I am so exhausted, panicked, depressed, and hypersensitive emotionally. I've worked with a naturopath and it's not helping the mood stuff so I'm finally coming back to psychiatry.
I already talked to my doctor this morning and she says that Lamictal isn't an activating drug, but we are going to try Trileptal, as I think it helped in the past. I'm so worried about taking drugs long term, it's so hard to face this.
I don't show as bipolar because I never have a manic (happy) state. I'm always tired, depressed and anxious. So it's more likely some random mood disorder or BPD.
Thank you for the responses. Do you take Lithium? Do you know anything about Trileptal?
I really want to try just the Lithium Orotate in a higher dose, but money's tight and I haven't been able to find a NP to try this. I don't know if it would work.
