Reminds me of a doc who said he had lots of panic disorder folks that AD's just didn't work for (he got tired of prescribing SSRI's and getting a call from the emergency room that the person had gone into a state of unmanagable high anxiety), so he'd put them of ca. 6 mg Xanax and they would seem to lose both their anxiety and depression symptoms. There would be a long withdrawal if that became necessary...but if it works, damn, it's worth it.
Oddly enought, I think you can stimulate yourself out of anxiety-I know that doesn't make sense-but Wellbutrin and Prozac stimulate me enough that I don't really care if I have a period of panic.
