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 miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
