Back in 2007 to 2012 I was on celexa20 mg for panic attacks and anxiety. It worked then but I gained weight so my Dr switched me to Zoloft 50mg was on it for over a year and they added topamax for 3 months. No change in weight but panic attacks I didn't have. My Dr then weened me off of both Zoloft and topamax and wanted me to start effexor I never did. I just stayed off meds. After 3 months of having no meds, I started having severe panic attacks. I started Zoloft 50 back up again bc I still had it at my house. After 3 weeks of torture and getting fears and phobias I've never had before, I cried to my Dr and she put me back on cekexa 20mg. I've been taking this for now 17 days. I've had 5 er trips in the last 2 months, I've lost at least 2 sizes bc my fears are so bad that I'm dying I can't eat or hardly sleep. I'm even having phobias of driving being home alone and me dying all the time. Its worse now than its ever been. I started therapy as well but don't see nurse practitioner until Jan 8. I'm to the point of scared to change meds again. Does anyone have advice? If u knew me before, I was outgoing, never afraid to drive, sang in front of crowds of ppl, now I can't even go in Walmart without feeling like I'm gonna lose control. Am I having a nervous breakdown? I'm 38 years old female.
