My BP was a little high one day, my Cardiologist put me on 5mg of Amlodipine. I never associated symptoms of short breath, anxiety, panic, malaise, etc., with the drug. Rather, I was refered to a psychiatrist who added Lexapro. When that didn't do the trick, Wellbutrine was added. When that didn't improve the symptoms, the dose was doubled. After several months, I became profoundly depressed. All I thought about all day long was dying. One day, I decided, "ENOUGH". I quit everything. Withdrawal is a bitch..miserable. I've been suffering those effects for three months. It slays me to think it was the Amlodipine the whole time. Every Dr. of mine acts like I'm crazy...as if I'm a "problem child". I find no sympathy. Hope I get better.
