Dreadful bursts

Posted by Alex71 on October 4, 2004, at 10:39:41

I am currently on 10 mg Lexapro. Have been taking it for about 3 months. The primary side effects (the usual stuff)almost went away , my anxiety is less now, but now I've been getting something new that totally freaks me out.
Every now and then, but only at night, I would suddenly wake up feeling so dreadful and that I am about to totally lose control over my head. It's evry hard to describe, but it's like there's something in my head controlling me and giving me this dreadful hoeless scare. It is not like a panic attack. It feels like much much worse. It only lasts for about a minute, but I am really really scared.
It happened again last night, I woke up and felt so scared that I jumped out my bed being almost unconsieous then I ran downstairs and fell down the steps so I hurt my knees and hit my head. During that time I couldn't get control over my mind at all. It lasted for about 1-2 minutes but I really wanted to kill myself during that time.
Has anyone experienced something like that? This was my 4th episode for the last 3 months. Now I am afraid to go to bed anticipating another burst.
