I too have come off meds and experienced what you are going through. I was on Paxil (Aropax here in Australia) for about a year and a half. I got to the stage where I felt I could go off them, so I did under supervision. It was great for a while but then I was under a considerable amount of stress with uni etc. (I am studying Nursing) and it seemed to come back twice as bad as when it was first diagnosed. I was in a constant state of panic and it seemed like I had PMT all the time, cry one minute then be angry the next. What you describe I wouldn't call a panic attack, they are intense and don't last too long (I suffer from them) they are debilitating while they are in action. Also there is anxiety attacks which last longer and are not so intense. I had the anxiety so bad that I couldn't leave the house without freaking out. I was then put on Xanax which made me extremely depressed and also the fact that I felt a failure for getting worse, was enough to make me feel devastated. I then changed doctors (as I wasn't happy with the treatment and meds he gave me). My new doc has been fantastic, straight away he got me off the Xanax (it was making me suicidal) and he put me on Zoloft. Gradually I started to feel better. My doctor has been brilliant. So I advise you to shop around like I have to find the doctor you are happy with. Remember it is your choice who you see.
Let me know how you go.
