Hi Kim,

I'm sorry to hear you had a bad panic attack, those can be so awful.

I'm at the end of week 4 of 10 mg Lex and noticed a huge improvement in my anxiety at the start of week 3. I have woken up in the middle of the night close to panic a couple of times, but have not had a serious attack since starting Lex.

A lot of people on the board have reported feeling anxious or panicing at night while on Lex. I'm not sure why it occurs during the night, but it's not unusual so you're not alone on this one.

I would urge you to call your pdoc. He/She might want to increase your dose or add something to your drug "cocktail" to help prevent your panic attacks.

I hope this is helpful. As I said before, I know panic attacks can be horrible and I don't think anybody should have to go through something so awful. Please call your pdoc and let us know how you're doing.
