My first thought is that you need a thorough workup if you haven't had a recent one or a second opinion. Anxiety is one way bipolar illness manifests, at least for me, so consider my view here a bit biased. Something else you described was having an adverse (activating) reaction to ssri's. This response could be the basis for a bipolar spectrum diagnosis.

I take Lyrica for anxiety as well, and panic attacks can still occur. I don't find that it helps with that kind of anxiety. Nothing beats xanax, but I'm off that class of meds, too.

Still, if you are experiencing that level of anxiety, you need a consultation with an expert if you can afford or find one. Other issues can create anxiety, like the years before menopause did for me, but I imagine you know this.

I take lamotrigine (lamictal) along with 400-600 Lyrica, and the combination helps considerably.
