Every time when I am in town and where there is a lot of people I get panic attacks, also when I was at a wedding I got a panic attack, is this normal? I was taking Zyprexa for 3 years and now I am taking Abilify 10mg for 5 months now, and I am constantly getting panic attacks when there is a larger crowd of people, this has never happened before in my life before I was diagnosed with Abilify and Zyprexa. Is this because of the medication or is there something wrong with me?
Hi, Mevi! You might talk to your doctor about starting an antidepressant. They are commonly and very successfully used to treat anxiety/panic disorders. Another option might be Buspar, an anxiolytic.
It's highly unlikely the medications you have/are taking would cause anxiety, especially not both of them. You probably have an underlying disorder that needs to be diagnosed and treated.
Best wishes and good luck to you, Wildcat
