I stopped taking the medicine recently and I am having the worst panic attacks in my life. I have had some anxiety before, but NOTHING LIKE THIS. The crazy, vivid dreams started a few days into taking the medication and progressively grew to become more disturbing. As a result, I woke up feeling disturbed and not normal. I lost my appetite, desire to go to work or socialize with friends, I became anti social (I am outgoing), stopped caring about my graduate school work and felt like I never had energy. The last two weeks (and even today, five days after stopping the meds) I have been experiencing scary panic attacks and extreme depression and feelings of being intensely scared like my life is spiralling out of control. I have never had something this scary happen to me before and I have had other traumatic events happen in my life that I was able to pull through because, well, I USED to feel resilient. I feel the worst in the morning when I first wake up. Does that make sense? Does anyone else have similar experiences? How long does it take it to get out of your system and does anyone have good advice as to how I can cope better?
