This is still the closest I’ve found to my situation. Short recap on my situation. Started meds at age 8. Was on various meds until age 23 when I tapered off Effexor for 2 weeks (as the doctor instructed). I have since had 3 episodes of severe continuous panic for three days straight that reduced in severity over a few months. The buzzing has never gone away completely. I have been dealing with agoraphobia for 3 years now. I’m so terrified of the level of panic I had. I can’t drive far. Can’t keeo a job. My doctor thinks I now have bipolar type 2 and I agreed to try lithium and lamotrogine to reduce agitation and mixed episodes. It’s helping, but hard to say how much since I’ve also lost both my parents, my marriage, aunt, cousin, and my sweet dog and cat, my home, and of course a few jobs. That’s a lot of loss. I use clonazepam if doing exposure therapy or if I panic. I’m careful not to use it often. I’m feeling hopeless. I don’t have much quality of life. I’m grateful for what I have. I also miss not having this constant buzz of anxiety that threatens to turn to panic.
