Neither! It is more likely intense anxiety and/or a nasty panic attack.

May be just to reassure you, yes it worths it!

You're younger than me. And i've had the same symptoms at your age. If i were you i would avoid at all cost all norepinephrine based medications.

- Valproate and Tegretol made me very depressed and zombified.

- TCAs were really bad too. Anxiety, irritability, anger burst, etc.

What helped me:

- SSRIs/SNRIs -> Paxil, Celexa and Effexor were/are really good. The others are way too much stimulating, but i didn't try Lexapro and Cymbalta. Moderate dose is prefered.

- Lithium -> almost essential. Therapeutic level is prefered: 0.6 to 0.8 mml.

- Atypical APs: low dose only. Moderate to high dose = blunt emotions and dead of our thoughts.

- Rivotril is your friend. Take it on a daily basis. A godsend in crisis periods.

- Lamictal. Not yet for you.


I gave you some clues. Now you may write it down on a paper and beg to see your pdoc asap.

Good luck!
