So, long story short: I have absence seizures, and have for like 20 years. I was on Zarontin for YEARS, until it really started bothering my stomach. I was then on Zonegran for about 10 years, then that started really upsetting my stomach. I have panic anxiety disorder as well, and have been on 40 mg Citalopram for about 8 years.
Sorry to hear You are having panic attacks. The next time You have a Dr.s appointment tell him/her about them. Triggers cause seizures, the next time You have a panic attack write down what You were doing when it happened, do that a few times and see if there is something in common when they happen. Good Luck!
Peanuts no offense taken. That's a very good question.
One other question sorry if anybody is offended-but is any of the medication You are taking now generic not brand name? The reason I ask is the insurance company like to same money. I was always taking brand name medication then insurance company found a way to make it less expensive for themselves and switched my brand name medication to generic medication with out telling me. The generic did not work for me for some reason and I ended up in the hospital. Maybe the generic will work for any of You-I am not saying it is bad-it just did not work for me.
It’s possible your experiencing side effects or maybe you already had anxiety and one of the meds may of been controlling your anxiety .
Meds react differently in all of us. Sorry to hear you’re having panic attacks. I have no experience of either of the drugs you take. I would talk to your neurologist about this. Maybe s/he can resolve the mix of meds you are taking.
