Hello, lately it been rough for me as I been drinking really strong coffee in the morning and chainsmoked that caused me a panic attack couple days ago. I also started to hear random songs in my head (when I was idle and not reading or talking). I stopped drinking coffee now and it is a little bit better I also experiencing lexapro withdrawals, could that influenced it? It wasn’t anxiety attack, it was panick attack. I took clonazepam and a tablet of nitrozepam before sleep. After two days I’m still anxious. Has anyone experienced something familiar?
Caffeine has given me a panic attack before. I think that in combination with you stopping lexapro was a bad idea.
I’m switching to trintellix now, lexapro used to give me insomnia and anxiety
supposedly the meds don’t work as well with high caffeine,
they wouldn’t let us have it in the hospital.
I don’t know if this is the reason you had a panic attack
but it may be possible. Mine come on during high stress.
Caffeine is hectic.
It gives me tactile hallucinations believe it or not !!!
For a year after I got my first episode I did not have a single panick attack, when I started lexapro, insomnia mixed up with caffeine in the morning really gave a kick to my anxiety and panick attacks. It sometimes took 6 hours to fall asleep. As I’m not off lexapro I was asleep easily
I read caffeine just works like amphetamine at large doses. I wonder why It’s not a controlled drug. In my country any energy drinks are banned if you are not 16 or older. But you can go into cafe and order large coffee with 2 espresso shots no problem
if it’s happening a lot, insomnia and panic attacks, best to call your doc’s nurse. I take trazadone for sleep.
I’m not experiencing insomnia anymore, I’m just still anxious and recovering from that panick attack. It feels like I snorted some cocaine two days ago and experiencing hangover. I think I made a right decision to stop completely drinking coffee and energy drinks
There are herbs you can take for panic attacks like valerian root, ashwagandha and tranquiline. They do wonders for my anxiety.
I was thinking about taking tranquiline for anxiety. How does it work?
It has a lot of herbs mixed in it like ashwagandha, gaba, passion flower, and a lot of other herbs. I take 4 a day and I used to have 3 panic attacks a week and then I stopped eating sugar and exercising and with tranqiline I’ve not had a panic attack in 2 weeks.
Kava is the best herb for anxiety but it will mess up your liver. Try only staying on it for like 3 months only then get off of it.
