Three weeks ago, I was prescribed 24mg of citoloptam for anxiety and panic attacks. I was anxious about taking them as I had a bad reaction to topirimate that I took earlier this year for migraines, which gave me awful anxiety and agitation and generally feeling unwell.
Sooo, I took one on the Friday, felt sick and little panicky, which was okay and was bareable.... The saturday night I took one at 7pm and by 9 I felt really strange and faint and was drenched with sweat.... got into bed at 10.30, rolled over and closed my eyes and the worst thing ever happened. I started hallucinating and all these random images were coming towards me, my heart raced like crazy, really sweating hard, got out of bed but fell down and couldnt get up!!! Called 111 but they weren't really interested. This lasted until 10.30 the next morning and was truly the worst thing that has ever happened to me. It was like I was on a really bad trip
Now 3 weeks on my anxiety is worse than ever, I keep having random flashbacks all day from my childhood and teen years, like de ja Vue, sweating and panic attacks caused by 2 doses of those bloody tablets!!
Is this drug induced anxiety or? Please help x
