Can taking low doses of opiods cause panic disorder?

I don't think in itself can cause a panic disorder but I have heard it can cause a rapid heart rate, or slow, it can cause mood changes and a feeling of being out of control... so it probably can cause anxiety and panic attacks. So in a round about way it probably can. You might also be having a idiopathic reaction to it. This has been explained to me as someone who has the directly opposite reaction to a medication for which it was intended and what is usually to common reaction by most people. I am assuming you are taking this for a medical condition. I would probably talk to your doctor about it and see if there is another pain control method that you can use that won't cause the panic or anxiety.
