I have panic attacks and gad. Taking xanix .50gm 3 times a day for 5 weeks now. Panic attacks have disapeared and i have just ocasssional anxiety which i can deal with. However i had go go see Dr.s to get refils and they would not refil xanix. one put me on paxil 20 mg once a day. went into halucinations, bad panic attacks, the whole nine yards. the next try was welbutrin which if you can believe was worse and land me in the hospital. next came the physchatrist who gave me celexa. 5mg per day. told me it would be a baby dose and i would not notice anything but gave me xanix to take as i was before just for my own peace of mind. Well, woke up in morning with a little bit of nerves so i took xanix at 8 as usual then about 10am i felt great and decided to have brakfast and take the celexa. by 11 am i was talking and listening to a customer writing down his order when all of a sudden my hand started to shake and i got that nervous feeling and went into a panic attack which i haven't had one for several weeks. the customer left and i started all the usual things like deep breathing, walking around, try jigsaw puzzel, watch tv , do housework, listen to relaxzation tapes, everything. It's now 10 pm and i'm still having chest pain and some nerves. I had it all day and can't get rid of it even for a few minutes. Called the phychiatrist and talked to the nurse who talked to her . Physc... said that i was afraid of taking the medicine and that it was all in my head causing these symptoms and to keep taking the medicine. Now this makes 3 times i have had SSRI's and had this reaction. I have no problem with the xanix. Infact i was even thinking of cuting it back down some. Has anyone here found out that they could not take the SSRI's like paxil, celexa,zoloft, welbutrin, etc without chest pains and nerves of some kind. lightheadnes etc. Any suggestions as to what to do.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
