In reply to SAM-E for panic disorder ??, posted by Caitlin on August 17, 2003, at 5:22:53

i'm sure it's different for everyone, so if it's safe with prozac, then you may want to try, but here's my experience:

i've been off paxil for a few weeks now. and i've been doing wonderfully! i'm happy about it. but i heard about sam-e and thought i'd try it for an extra boost.

i took my first one yesterday, and this morning i have awful panic like i haven't in a long time (even coming off the paxil). i can't say 100% it's the sam-e, but upon googling i saw that someone else said it triggered panic in them as well.

so, if safe, try and see if i helps or hurts at first. but i recommend exercise (especially calming yoga stretches), diet (certain foods trigger anxiety or have chemicals to help calm you), and things like journaling. if you do find you still need medication, at least do these things along with the meds. they make a world of difference! for me they've been awakening my true self and i feel happier and healthier than i have in years. :)

the best to you.
