Re: bipolar/marijuana Response to Worrier

I have been trying to find a solution to the issue I had with marijuana. Seven years ago I had my first "flip session" panic attack after smoking a huge amount of bud. I mean I actually flipped out, I ran through a screen door, I smashed my buddy's cd collection, etc. it was horrible. I hallucinated like crazy, I thought I was in a frickin' time portal, shit was scary. Every time I smoked since then, the SAME EXACT thing would happen, so I quit.

The problem is, I still struggle with that experience today, almost like PTSD. The feelings and experience have caused me to shy away from everything for fear it may happen again. Dee C, like you I am pissed I ever started, cause I was a badass mother$#@!er before any of this happened.

My first AD was Paxil I went on and off for about 2 years, in hindsight it made things better. Now, I take effexor xr, but it really isn't doing much, what else would you suggest I do?

Any response would be greatly appreciated.
