I went off Zoloft/Wellbutrin a couple weeks ago and started taking Melatonin and Magnesium Citrate heavily, then just this past week-ATivan since anxiety came back after xxRI discontinuation.
Now for the past 2 days, I had severe panic attacks and bipolar systems--brief mild mania followed by racing thoughts and full blown panic attack at the same time. It happened between 1 and 2 in the afternoon both times. Both days, I didn't eat anything. Also at 2 am, I start getting anxiety symptoms. I've had GAD a number of years; have discontinued xxRIs several times for a number of years with no problems.
Could the bipolar symptoms be related to the Melatonin, magnesium, and/or Ativan? Did any one have a similar situation where the BP symptoms are temporary?
