I think it is startup stuff. On starting, I had several panic attacks per day - it peaked about day 5 and gradually went away completely. The thing is, I hated it but not treating my panic attacks was not going to work for me. I tried that and it did not work..... Getting thru the getting thru was really worth it. It honestly was for me.
I KNOW it's tough. I really do know that. My suggestion is to use Xanax to help you through this. For me, Klonopin was really helpful and I was able to decrease dosing once the Lex kicked in.
I strongly suggest you stop doing the internet searches. I don't think that's going to help you. I have a friend who says: "You have to be careful WHATEVER you look up for info on the 'net - there are NO happy stories to be found there...". It's true on most subjects.
My thoughts are with you....
