Yeah, i spoke to a pdoc today, and he said that lamictal and depakote are possibilities for me to take with lyrica, but did not write them for me yet, maybe because i am also thinking about the possibility here, that time could take the recurring panic attacks away (have had this before, that the attacks only happened daily for a few weeks), so i have not started any extra medication yet.

You know when you get these attacks about every day like i do at the worst, times it feels like a never ending cycle, that will just go on and on and on, and then you come to these forums, to try and find instant help to your condition. I actually think i am a bit better today, but it has been like this for a few days, that i get very bad days, and a bit better ones in between.

Normally im actually really calm, and do well with my lyrica, half a pill of valdoxan, and 7,5mg of mirtazapine), this has basicly become the normal me because of pretty long uses with all of these drugs. I kind of thought that it could be that lyrica had run its course, and its the withdrawal symptoms from that which are causing me to have these symptoms, but after further evaluation, i highly doubt it since it has helped me for nearly a decade already. The attacks just started to happen ouf of the blue so to speak.

He wrote to me a script of 5mg zyprexa to take if i cant sleep (which has been really f*ck*d up lately), and i dont want to go back on the benzos, because they really can make a persons life even more bad. I have avoided them , since my last withdrawal 4 years ago. I mean i am not saying everyone should stop taking them, i mean for some people they work for decades even, but for me they worked for maybe a week, and then i was just dependent on taking them. I think it must be just the way im built or something.

I mean the possibilities for my little bit calmer mood, might be that i took maybe 100mg of atarax (hydroxyzine or something, and a tab or two of clonidine) besides my normal medication.

If i do start to take some new medication, which should i consider first, regarding the side effects and everything, lamictal or depakote?

I have been having these pretty strange physical symptoms like trembling / shaking, and a very tight chest, so maybe the clonidine is also helping a bit atleast regarding the sweating and all.

So regarding the most important question, thorough work up! Which tests do you guys think would fit the profile for anxiety? Thyroid, asthma, something else? I think i would wan't to have some say in what they test me for . Last work up was done 16 years ago ;).
