Lithium for severe anxiety, anyone?

Posted by jms600 on May 22, 2008, at 16:34:26


For the past six years I have been suffering from anxiety, which has grown quite severe over the past five months. My basic diagnosis is panic disorder, generalized, anxiety disorder, and moderate depression.

I've tried about a dozen or so different drugs which don't seem to have done very much. My psychiatrist is now considering Lithium.

I don't think I am bi-polar. I certainly suffer depression and severe anxiety, along with racing thoughts which are accompanied by severe panic, but I don't get actual 'manic' phases.

My question is, will Lithium really help my anxiety and panic attacks?? I've tried a number of antipsychotics which don't seem to have much of an effect. I'm also taking Diazepam on an as-needed basis, but obviously this isn't a long term solution.

Will Lithium work for panic attacks and G.A.D.??
