Has anyone had panic attacks get bad when on the duragesic patch? I don't know if it's a coincedence but I have had 2 major panic attacks in the past few days. I have always struggles with anxiety and some panic attacks, but hav'nt had a problem for a long time. The first attack was when I took some cough medicine that I did'nt realize had codein in it. I got the spins and freaked out, I thought I was going to die!! I made myself puke and had the cold sweats, diahrea, could'nt breath, and felt like I was going to go crazy. I called the doc and he told me to take benadril to counter the codein. I have taken pain killers for years and have no idea why I reacted to it that way. Now I have done something stupid and forgot to get my trazadone (sleep aid) filled and was without it last night and today is a holiday so I'll be without it tonight. I have been on it for years and the withdrawl is a living hell. I have never had withdrawl on the first night without before, it usually takes a couple days or so. I did'nt sleep well at all last night and had to get up at 5am because I was starting to get that panicked feeling. I don't know what to think of all this! I hope I don't have to stop taking the fentenal because it's the first thing that has actually helped and given me hope. I am so depressed, and so tired, and so scared of this icky feeling inside!!

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...
