Klonopin or Zyprexa better for panic attacks?

Posted by Jimmyboy on November 14, 2005, at 16:01:06

Hi,


I used to be on Serzone which helped somewhat but was nice because there were basically no side effects. I started taking Wellbutrin XL a week ago and what used to be a fairly modest amount of anxiety has turned into a lot of anxiety and sometimes even a panic attack ( especially when driving).

I really want to continue the Wellbutrin but need something to help with the anxiety. I know many people use Klonopin and some others suggest an antipsychotic like Zyprexa.

Which one do you reccommend? Has anyone used these combo's with Wellbutrin? Any advice would be appreciated..

I think clonazepam would be a better choice. I have heard that zyprexa can nullify some of the antidepressant effects of wellbutrin.

Zyprexa isn't really an antipanic agent in my oppinion.

Hi,

I've never taken Klonopin so can't comment on that. However, I have taken 10mg of Zyprexa now and again and have to say it works wonders (very quickly) for excruciating anxiety and racing thoughts.

I think Zyprexa is a great drug in emergencies.
